A line connecting two points is the concept which underlines the infrastructure planning and design of the Pavilion of Chinese Railways by the theme “Harmonious Railways expand spaces for better life”. The architecture of the pavilion consists of two buildings side covered with metal panels that form a square, symbolizing the classic urban grid, connected by a third body with an elegant shape made by glass that ideally represents the link element of the Pavilion. The concept of connection between the two sides is highlighted by a system of lines, reminiscent of a rail scheme, formed by LED lights placed in the glass façade.
