Shanghai World Expo: The Greek pavilion is set to make its debut opening on Saturday. The venue's theme is "Polis, the living city."

The pavilion's design refers to the urban fabric, not as a physical replica, but as an interpretation of living and functioning in the city. The perfect reminder of the joy of the urban life.

The pavilion condenses 24 hours in the life of a Greek city into the 12 hours that the pavilion will be open to the public. The pavilion could be seen as a living organism that follows a daily cycle synchronized with the cycle of the sun in Shanghai.
