Theme: Architectural and Cultural Diversity of Our Cities
National Pavilion Day: August 22
Location: Within Zone C of the Expo Site
The Hungarian Pavilion is decorated with more than 800 wood rods, and visitors will feel they are having a walk in a forest. These wooden rods not only reflect light, but also rise and fall with changing music rhythms to bring visitors both audio and visual impacts.
Highlight 1: Gomboc
A new invention named Gomboc, created by two Hungarian mathematicians, will be displayed in the pavilion. It is the first known homogenous object with one stable and one unstable equilibrium point, similar to the shape of the Chinese roly-poly. The Gomboc is a symbol of the unremitting and creative spirit of the Hungary nation.
Highlight 2: Wood rods
Wood rods are musical instruments themselves and can make sweet sounds when tapped. The sounds even change in the morning, afternoon and evening. The National Pavilion Day will be a chance to showcase a feast of Hungarian culture
