Entitled Ocean Imagination, this incredible pavilion is a proposal for the Thematic Pavilion of Yeosu 2012. The pavilion allows visitors to experience the ocean’s ecosystems. “Ocean Gate” takes the culture of the sea shore and shifts it vertically. This move creates a dynamic visual that is a constant reminder of nature’s different environments. “It combines ocean ecosystem and architecture in accordance with the main theme of ‘Ocean & Life,’” says Unsangdong Architects.
It is an eye-catching proposal combines nature and the imagination in an effort to create the “best use of the infinite possibility of nature.” The main exhibition, an ‘Organism of Scenery’, took inspiration from the Korean seasons – in spring, flowers bloom everywhere, in summer, the scenery contains dramatic waterfalls and thick forests, in fall, the leaves on the trees turn yellow and in winter, a blanket of snow lay on the ground.
