The concrete lattice work of this airy building makes it seem as though it is hovering over the ground. Inside the trellis-like exterior of the French Pavilion are lavish gardens, French food, films, paintings and perfume. The best of the country has traveled to Shanghai and is putting on quite a show! Ferrier Architectures’ pavilion also has a green roof which contributes to its sustainability.
