2D3D [4]‘s My Green World pavilion is stained bright orange (a color traditionally associated with the Dutch monarchy), creating a dramatic statement. The massive form stands out against the surrounding landscape, attracting a host of visitors to the exhibition.

The interior will feature a range of environmental displays throughout the expo [5], and it will be used as office space afterwards. During the day the prefab structure is flooded with daylight, and at night it’s illuminated by LED lights. An elevated bridge creates a separate floor.
