After Taejon in 1993, it was to Yeosu to host this event in the beautiful coastal area of southern countries.
But history of Korea in Expos is much older. It begins in 1893, in Chicago.
I suggest you follow the realization of this reconstruction 3D project, which reflects well the great and rich history of Korea in World Expos.
The World Columbian Exposition.
This expo 1893 celebrates the fourth centenary of the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus.
Located in Jackson Park on the shores of Lake Michigan, it received more than 27 million visitors from May to October 1893.
This World Expo is best known for his architectural achievements, the White City, and for its Ferris Wheel in the entertainment area of Midway Pleasance.
The Ferris wheel, 264 feet high.
This Expo would allow Korea to promote its identity, to be heard in an international environment and create links with Western nations.
The Korean exhibition, between Colombia and Ecuador, was located in the largest palace, the Manufactures and Liberal Arts.
Palace of Manufactures and Liberal Arts.
The stand at the open structure is inspired by Korean construction. There are traditional clothing, military, guns, pipes, korean musical instruments, and a wide variety of household goods.
First step of realization of the 3D structure of the Korea pavilion.
The photos of this korean pavilion at the Exposition of 1893 are very rare, so there are few sources of reference.
The pavilion is filled with objects presented, which were visible on some photographic reference.
The pavilion in the environment of the Palace of Manufactures and Liberal Arts. These elements are placed to serve as a credible background, this kind of photographic view would have been of considerable assistance.
3D modeling is completed, the next step is the texturing of the different elements.
