Impermanence: Memento Mori

by SUNDRUP, MICHAEL FRANCIS

Abstract (Summary)
Momento Mori - Remember that one must die - The World Expo is beneficial in that it brings the international community together and creates a discourse of culture and understanding, but on a more environmental level, it is extremely wasteful as it requires a massive infrastructure and apparatus for a short time period. The waste that occurs for this event as well as for a typical building when it is demolished has a profound negative impact on the environment. And so, this project looks to impermanence as a design directive.
