The “Chinese red” that decorates the pavilion is composed of seven different reds, and was picked out from hundreds of red materials. The pavilion body is dark red at the top and gradually become lighter at the bottom to form an accordant and classic visual effect with the refraction of sunlight in the day and projection of lighting at night, as well as other different visual conditions.

In addition, the red boards of the China Pavilion are made of metallic materials with corduroy-like textures, which not only covers the textured "outerwear" of the China Pavilion, but also makes the bright-colored red look simple and clear.

The national-grade cultural relic “Riverside Scene at the Qingming Festival” will be showcased on a 100-meter-wide wall.
