Daily Dose: Canada Pavilion

Add to TwitterMasonry Technology’s “neighbors to the North” are putting on a good show for the 2010 World Expo! Cirque du Soleil aided in the design process of the Canadian Pavilion and will also be performing during the expo along with other acts and exhibits. Even the outside of the building suggests eye-popping acrobatics!

The Canadian pavilion, which was built by SNC-Lavalin, Inc., is all clad with wood panels and has rainwater-harvesting features which make it “greener.” Stephen Harper, Prime Minister, says that they wish to “present Canada as the modern, democratic, bilingual, diversified and environmentally responsible country that it is.” Kudos to you, Canada for putting on a show-stopping performance.
