Architect: Moriyama & Teshima
Location: Jubilee
Size: 1,364 square metres
Inspiration: The wooden structure is inspired by the Canadian landscape and Middle Eastern architectural elements and is a reference to the traditional Mashrabiya.
Material: All of the wood used in the building of the geometric lattice that wraps around the facade came from British Columbia.
Outside the pavilion: Glowing fossils radiating a beautiful amber glow; eight inhabitable boxes scattered throughout the hall to the pavilion will house these remnants of a possible future
Inside the pavilion: The journey continues with a 360-degree theatre experience through Canada’s four seasons that is inspired by the vast Canadian landscape.

Inside, the journey continues with a 360-degree theatre experience through Canada’s four seasons that is inspired by the vast Canadian landscape—an artistic expression of Canada’s natural diversity—combining celebration, abundance, reflection, observation, healing, hope and energy, which, together, tell Canada’s story and demonstrate Canadians’ ability to creatively solve problems hand-in-hand with the global community. The journey highlights the links between Canada’s natural beauty and resources, the power of its Indigenous peoples’ traditional knowledge and the diversity and dynamism of Canada’s urban centres, which are engines of creativity, innovation and prosperity.
