Apicella helps Hong Kong tourism drive

Architect Lorenzo Apicella has designed a two-storey mobile pavilion as a self-contained exhibition environment for the Hong Kong Tourist Association (HKTA).

The 40-tonne steel and glass structure can be put together in eight hours. The pavilion will tour around 60 European towns and cities in its first year.

The 300m2 building’s two floors are connected by lightweight bridges. “A translucent membrane surrounding the pavilion provides natural light during the day, and it is internally lit at night time,” says a HKTA spokesman.

The multi-purpose pavilion will be used for exhibitions, meetings, presentations and seminars.
