Colorful imaginings

WITH its sculptured curving walls and warm red ochre exterior, the Australia Pavilion has been a magnet for visitors and will attract more today as it celebrates its National Pavilion Day.

Visitors can attend a large-scale cultural performance, as well as smaller shows representing the best of Australian art.

Themed "ImagiNation," the 4,800 square meter pavilion in Zone B features a red facade made from a special kind of temperature-sensitive steel that changes color as temperature and humidity change.

The pavilion is divided into three sections - "Journey," "Discover" and "Enjoy" - and they showcase many aspects of Australian life including its landscape, history, culture, technology and urban development.

The exhibition includes a short film and mini-documentaries about 21 women from Australia and China.
