After winning the architecture competition for the Norway Pavillion for the Expo 2010 in Shanghai, Helen & Hard contacted KHING and Studio LD to design the sophisticated membrane roof structure. After the form of the membrane was defined, Studio LD completed the structural calculation and developed all the construction details. This was done considering that after the World Exposition in China, all wodden trees-like
elements were to be separated and installed individually on different locations around the world.
