FEATURES
A pavilion with a "Traditional Chinese" architectural motif was deliberately selected to portray Chinese culture. It will rise four stories to a height of 78 feet. The ground floor will contain a general exhibit hall and gift shop and the second floor will be laid out as a series of multi-purpose meeting rooms. The core of the pavilion will be the third floor, where special exhibits will display precious jadeware, paintings, tapestries and sculpture. The building's fourth floor will be utilized for office and storage.
