Construction began May 26,2009 on the Space Pavilion which is being built by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, the China Aerospace Science & Industry Corporation and the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation.
The pavilion will look like a huge cube suspended in mid-air. The surface will look like outer space.
The design will make it look as though the structure is unsupported in places, said Wu Zhuo, deputy director of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
The pavilion will show how aerospace technologies change people's daily lives. It will offer a preview of people's "environmentally friendly, safe and intelligent" future life. The spirit of the Chinese astronauts who are exploring space will be a centerpiece in the pavilion.
