C.Y. Lee designed the Taiwan Pavilion for the Shanghai 2010 World Expo, with the theme "Mountain, Water, Heart and Lantern." A large sphere is suspended in a glass lantern. Mount Morrison and Mount Ali are painted on the exterior.
The structure incorporates each of the five elements: gold, wood, water, fire, and earth. This pavilion was sponsored by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council as a motion of good-will in China, which disputes the independence of Taiwan.
