The Korean Pavilion for the 1986 World Exposition in Vancouver was designed with the purpose of show-casing the accomplishments of the Korean People. The design carefully integrated the World Fair’s theme of “transportation & communications” throughout the pavilion.

The pavilion begins with an entryway that leads viewers through historical examples of Korean transportation & communication (the past) that then flows into modern day examples (the future).

Included in the design were a live theatre area, showcasing Korean dancing and music, as well as a restaurant serving authentic cuisine in a traditional ambience.

The Korea Pavilion was one of the most heavily attended international pavilions and was voted by the Expo ’86 Guide Book as one of the top 10 pavilions of the fair.
