Russia Pavilion

Russia Pavilion

THEME: New Russia: City and Citizen

PAVILION: Twelve irregularly shaped 20 meter tall towers in white, gold and red surround a 15 meter high central building known as the “Civilization Cube.” Each of the twelve towers are decorated with the national symbols of the twelve regions of Russia. The buildings are meant to resemble the circular formation of a Russian folk dance, and the overall design is based on the City of Children from beloved Russian author Nicolai Nosov’s “The Adventures of DUNNO and His Friends.”

These are displayed throughout this gallery along the walls and in specialized display cases.

The City of Talents is a fairy tale version of a city as might be imagined by children – it is located on the second floor of the Pavilion. Interactive touch screens flash games help in the understanding of this section of the Pavilion, where whimsical and colorful characters display innovative solutions to ongoing urban problems. Bright colors, giant fruit and vegetables, and video screens lend an air of fantasy and charm to the Pavilion.
