On the first of May 2010, the new Universal Exposition started in Shanghai. Belgium is also present at this universal exposition with a pavilion with a surface of about 5.600 m˛, constructed in an area dedicated to European pavilions. The pavilion is created around the structure of a “Brain Cell”, being the dominant conceptual image for the building. It evokes the artistic richness of Belgium and Europe, as well as its scientific achievements which contribute to the development and enrichment of our cultural and intellectual patrimony. The Brain Cell also refers directly to the role of Belgium as one of Europe’s main gathering centres and cross-points of 3 great cultural traditions: the Latin, the Germanic and the Anglo-Saxon. Belgium, closely connected to its surrounding countries, has always been a “place of balance” where people have gathered with common interests that surpass their national needs. This makes Belgium one of the birthplaces of the European Union.
