The Korean Pavilion is inspired by the traditional South Korean ceramic pot which is used for food storage. It is one of the structures built by CMC of Ravenna (together with CMB), which also created the French and Thai Pavilions. It has an undulation fa├žade raised from the ground that envelops the entire structure. The structure includes 490 tons of metal carpentry and completely dry external and internal systems.
