Korean pavilion at 1900 World Expo Paris - Artistic drawing, unfortunaterly, colors are not the good ones, and there were no trees like that in this part of the Expo !
Now, I will show the Korean pavilion of Expo 1900 in the 3D project, and how it was rebuilt for the film.
Here's the first steps of the 3D modeling :
The furniture inside the house are just to make the filling, if the inside is just visible in the final 3D animation. There is not much documentation and photos on these elements.
The little house on the right is the office of the Commissioner General of the Korea exhibition.
I love these pictures show modeling without the textures. They allow to understand the forms of architecture pavilion.
