        • “Imagine a building designed and constructed to function as elegantly and efficiently as a flower: a building informed by its bioregion’s characteristics, and that generates all of its own energy with renewable resources, captures and treats all of its water, and operates efficiently and for maximum beauty.” Los Angeles World’s Fair (LAWF) is a social purpose company that aims to bring the World’s Fair to Los Angeles in 2022. 

          “Distinctive pavilions and urban settings will be spread throughout Los Angeles County, located near and accessed by various metro stops along the transit system. The plans are specifically designed to encourage a grand scale transition from a car-dependent culture to widespread adoption of mass-transit. The theme of the fair is “LA: The Connected City; A World Connected™ and seeks to do it on every level – from the physical to the cultural.” Pavilion Zero Concept: Pavilion Zero will be the main pavilion at the Los Angeles World’s Fair’s™ and the initial operational epicenter and informational locus. The pavilion will act as headquarters and event center for the Fair, providing a dedicated venue for meetings, conferences, presentations, and events throughout the development and implementation of the entire project. It will set the agenda for all participating pavilions spread throughout LA’s 88 cities, demonstrating cutting­ edge infrastructure and communication technology, immersive and participatory media, community sensitivity and transportation connectivity, the promise of the fully developed LA World’s Fair™ to come.
