I don’t know about you people, but we here at Radar HQ do love a bit of the Boston Globe’s Big Picture. Step THIS WAY for a wonderful inside look at Shanghai’s Expo construction project. Some of those pavilions are c-r-a-z-y.
At risk of cliches or bad humor, what was the Dutch architect smoking?
And was his Luxemberger mate smoking the same shit?
(UPDATE: DJ Torpedo Something Something alerted us to Adam Minter’s article on Expo construction. Particularly awesome is the US$61m US pavilion that looks a bit like a Tesco supermarket. Country in crisis? Check that HERE.)
For those of you needing an insight into how wonderfully naff most of Expo will be, check out these videos from last night’s “30 days until Expo” opening bash. Foreign artists included Vitas, Laura Fygi and Rain. Please make sure you watch the second video, and tell us who the guy with sunglasses and rolled up sleeves is. We LOVE him….
