The 2008 Zargoza Expo promoted a relationship between humans and water with sustainable developments.
The "Flag of Aragon" is formed from 9 monumental vertical cores. Levels of interstitial space stack around them. The courtyards formed from these overlapping spaces take on different natural-looking forms. It is inspired by the natural wonders that are eroded and shaped by the flowing river.
An exterior envelope is woven from glazing and walls, a rippling form that reminds the visitor of water. Large plastic fruit on top of the building represents the results of a good water supply. Architect Laurent Godel contributed to the expo.
