About The Show
As one of the show's crucial themes was environmental awareness, the building had to be green. Harvard trained architect/engineer, Arthur Huang, who has a special interest in sustainable design, came up with the idea of the Eco Ark Pavilion.

But with limited time and money and plenty of unknowns in the equation, the design team battled almost overwhelming challenges.
