These photos were taken on August 24th, so they’re only about 3 weeks old. I’m sure of the names of some of the venues, but for others, the names on the map that I refer to don’t match up with the names on the official website, so there’s a bit of confusion. At any rate, things seem to be progressing well, and I haven’t heard any reports that anything was behind schedule.
First is a shot of the Korean Pavilion, which I’m reasonably sure is the correct name for the building.
Next up is the Marine City and Conservation Pavilion (not sure about this one).
Here’s the aquarium, with the hotel under construction in the background. (100% sure)
Here’s the aquarium by itself from a bit closer.
And a closer view of the hotel.
This one could be the Marine Industrial and Technology Pavilion or the Climate and Environment Pavilion or the previously mentioned Marine City and Civilization Pavilion. Which one is it? I guess I’ll have to make a trip to the Expo Visitor Center and look at their 3-D model to find out.
Next, the Expo Town–pretty sure of this one.
The Local Government Pavilion (reasonably sure).
A general view of part of the construction area. The two cylindrical buildings to the right will comprise the sky tower.
Finally, there’s a new addition to the visitor center. I’ve no idea if it has a name other than, perhaps, “Crabby.”
That’s it for now. I’ll keep checking the site every once in a while and post more photos as progress dictates. Hope to see you at the Expo in 2012!
