Hungary Pavilion


Hungary Pavilion

THEME: Harmony, Creativity, Hospitality

PAVILION: Over 1000 hanging wood rods will give the visitor the effect of walking through a forest. The rods will rise and fall with changing music rhythms making the Pavilion one large kinetic sculpture.

EXHIBIT: In the center of the Pavilion is a gomboc, an invention of two Hungarian mathematicians. It has never been displayed outside of Hungary before, and is the first known homogenous object with one stable and one unstable equilibrium point. The hanging rods will produce a musical sound when tapped, with a variation of sounds from morning, afternoon and evening.

The rods are illuminated from within, creating a beautiful light show in the evenings. The hanging rods create a kind of maze through which visitors must navigate. The rising and falling of the rods will change the maze even as the visitors walk through it. On the far wall, projections will show innovative Hungarian architecture and views of city life in Budapest and other Hungarian cities. A visitor center will have smaller versions of the gomboc which visitors can examine more thoroughly.
