Pavilion 1

A Reflection of Progress: The LOOK pavilion is comprised of numerous mirrors inlaid with LEDs and is a tribute to Saint-Gobain's tradition of glassmaking. By day, its exterior reflects the dynamic world around it; by night, it becomes a perpetually shifting cube of light.

A New Sensation: The LISTEN pavilion is a nod to the Company's acoustic performance materials. This "padded" cube is perfectly sound insulated and uses sound-unique "spatialization" technology to take visitors on an interactive aural journey.

The Stuff of Dreams: The COLOR pavilion is a freestanding carousel made of two glazed mobile concentric rings with custom-contoured multicolored textures. A kaleidoscope on an epic scale, this slowly revolving installation transports visitors into a dreamlike multicolored world.
