Health Futures pavilion

health 2000

Whilst at The Visual Connection I was responsible for content interpretation in the amazing Health Futures pavilion, designed by Toyo Ito on behalf of the World Health Organisation.

The picture shows the massive immersive space with projection of 'inner body images' onto a 100 metre wall and five 'spot screens' for programmes about WHO projects around the world. There was also projection onto a reflective floor and a small lake. The opposite was was literally a mirror image of the one you can see.

The entire space had to communicate without voice over or graphics as this was a contemplative space which multi-national audiences entered and left at will. They could also sit in vibrating, tilting chairs as part of the experience.

The pavilion was one of the most popular at Expo 2000.
