Ruby Tuesday - Germany Pavilion at Shanghai Expo
The Germany Pavilion was one of the few pavilions that my hubby managed to visit at the Shanghai Expo. Having heard positive reviews from friends, he was keen on visiting the interactive exhibits at the pavilion. My hubby took tons of shots and I thought I would share some pictures of the modern, creative and innovative face of Germany.
Here are some artistic renditions of the pavilion.

The theme of the pavilion, is Balancity and it features a thrilling interplay of various urban spaces of buildings and nature and how the country's design and products can help overcome urbanization problems.
For those who have not visited Germany, the Pavilion will be a great eye opener to visitors as it features some of the magnificent landmarks of the city. Moving past these presentations, you can make your way into the city. There are backdrops showcasing almost life-sized images of some of the landscapes.
The pavilion also showcases a variety of contemporary art collections and cultural scene.
Other German innovations include the energy source, the city's power plant which is the main highlight of the exhibition. Interestingly, visitors can cause a ton of sphere to swing by shouting together, a symbol that people can get things moving by working together.
