Israel Pavilion


Israel Pavilion

THEME: Innovation for Better Life

PAVILION: The Pavilion is composed of two streamlined buildings hugging each other. It resembles two clasped hands, or a “seashell.” One side is made of authentic stone while the other is of transparent glass. The design symbolizes Israeli innovation and technology as well as represents the dialogue between humanity and nature, the earth and sky as well as the past and the future.

EXHIBIT: The Pavilion highlights innovation and ancient Jewish culture. It consists of three areas; the Whispering Garden, the Hall of Light and the Hall of Innovations. Inside the stone area is the Hall of Innovations, symbolizing links with the earth and history, as well as the recycling of natural resources. Under the glass is the Hall of Light, symbolizing technology, transparency, lightness and the future. The Whispering Garden is an orchard that comes into view as visitors enter the Pavilion. About 50 orange trees have been planted and technology will make the trees “whisper” in English and Chinese when visitors walk close to them. Here, everyone is expected to be in direct touch with nature and the irrigation technology the Israelis take justifiable pride in. Visitors will enter the Pavilion itself at that point, with the walls covered with photomurals of various locations in Israel, including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Galilee and the Dead Sea resort area. The Hall of Light features a 15-meter screen that shows film highlighting the country’s innovation and technological achievements. Natural lighting filters in through the glass walls. Visitors will then enter the main theater. As the centerpiece of the Pavilion, the Hall of Innovations presents an audiovisual show that will allow visitors to hear from Israeli children, doctors, scientists and inventors on hundreds of screens. Each light sphere here represents innovation and technological breakthroughs in such fields as agriculture, pharmacology, solar and green energies, science, music, literature, computers, telecommunications, medicine and security.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.
