jacques ferrier architects were selected to design the french pavillion at shanghai expo 2010. their project ‘the sensual city’ is a simple building with a big style french garden inside. surrounded by water it appears to be floating. the 6000 square meter pavillion will use advanced building materials and environmental protection technology including solar panels on top of the roof.
