Performing Cities

Performing Cities is the theme for the Philippine Pavilion at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai. Accented by a montage of hands - emphasize the "human dimension" in urbanization, the pavilion is draped with white diamond-shaped tiles that glow at night.

Inside the pavilion has a fiesta atmosphere, with a menagerie of exhibits, artworks, performances, videos and booths that celebrate the Filipino culture and urbanity.

A restaurant called Travel Cafe Philippine awaits hungry visitors, and booths around the pavilion sells Philippine-made souvenirs such as pearl jewelry, Ninoy shirts, compact discs of Philippine musicians, and handicrafts.
