Shanghai World Expo, on the interwebs

May 4, 2010

The world EXPO, an international competition for attention through architecture, lighting, films and stories in what used to be docklands and shipyards. Shanghai spent more than $48 billion in preparing  the grounds for the EXPO that is more than what it cost to clean up Beijing. Now 1.7 million volunteers are working at the site guiding, securing and feeding the massive crowds.
For the first time there is now an online expo at
www.expo.cn with an incredibly annoying waterdrop character guiding you around. Each country is encouraged to make their own 3D walkthrough of their own pavilion.

We (m-l.no) have now worked for months on the Expo project where one of our many tasks has been to create the digital replica of the Norwegian Pavilion. Naturally we were eager to see what other countries had come up with, here is a collection of ome of the sites I found interesting:

Obviously, I would like to show you the site we made.

UK Pavilion

My favourite (of the remaining ones) is the UK Pavilion, a well made, stylish interactive walkthrough.
Also i really like the UK pavilion i whish the walktrhough offered even more pictures/close-ups of the inside of it.

Japanese Pavillion

After an hour of looking for good ones this loading screen enthused me, but the site, I am afraid did not quite deliver the goods

Israeli Pavillion

Seems to represent what these sites tend to look like.

Danish Pavillion

Shout out to our friends in Demark for a lovely logo and graphic profile, to bad this site uses PC only technology so I couldn’t look at it in all its glory, maybe you can?

100 kilo website

January 18, 2009

We had a couple of days to spare in the office after new years so we decided to do something a bit different during those days. I have wanted to literally build a website for a while so this seemed like the perfect occasion to have a bit of fun and get down with some DIY. So we got a little money at our disposal, made some sketches and started going about getting hold of all the needed material. We bought a lot of plywood some 40 meters of wooden beams, a birds house for the home icon, a folder for the portfolio icon, spray cans, paint, wallpaper and a lots of other stuff, the video tells the rest of the story.

The music in the video is made by tsjekkoslovakia a band by some of my colleagues.

The footage was shot by the one and only, Karina Lavik

The company is M&L.
