    The construction costs for the 2025 World Exposition in the western Japanese city of Osaka are now expected to reach up to 235 billion yen (about 1.57 billion U.S. dollars), nearly 1.9 times the original estimate.
    The Japan Association for the 2025 World Exposition, the organizer of the event, informed relevant parties on Friday of the new estimate. This is the second time the venue construction cost estimate has been raised.

    Last year Bandai Namco Holdings announced that it will have a Gundam-themed area at the 2025 World Expo in Osaka. On Friday, the company revealed the name of the area and a visual, as well as concept art of what it will look like from the outside. The name of the area will be "Gundam Next Future Pavilion." The tagline on the image below reads, "It will connect to the 'future'."

    A gumnut-inspired design by a global design team led by Buchan has been chosen for the Australian Pavilion at Expo 2025 in Osaka.


    Buchan’s design team has come up with a truly Australian pavilion, which calls on the ubiquitous eucalyptus tree and its gumnut as a symbol of ‘the diversity and resilience of Australian people,’ says Buchan.

    The structure will reference the gumnut as an abstracted form and will be illuminated with a soft rosy glow to ‘reflect the vibrancy of contemporary Australian society’.

    A groundbreaking ceremony took place in early September for the Japan pavilion of the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo on Osaka’s man-made Yumeshima Island. The pavilion will serve as a venue for the government to promote the expo’s theme of “Designing Future Society for Our Lives” as the host country and also play a diplomatic role in welcoming foreign dignitaries and other visitors.

    Yoichi Miyamoto, head of the Japan Federation of Construction Contractors, said Friday that he is unsure whether foreign pavilions for the 2025 World Exposition in the western city of Osaka can be built in time.
    "At this point, I don't know whether they will be completed in time (for the Expo's opening) or not," Miyamoto, also chairman of general contractor Shimizu Corp., told a press conference regarding the delayed construction of pavilions for foreign countries participating in the Osaka Expo.

    New pictures have surfaced of Sou Fujimoto’s 700-meter diameter wooden ring roof taking shape in Japan. Designed as the master plan for the highly-anticipated Expo 2025 Osaka, the proposal reveals a 60,000 sqm green-filled structure that will serve as the international fair’s main circulation path. In a recent interview with designboom, the Japanese architect stated that the roof ‘not only protects people from sunlight and rain but is also enormous, with a diameter of almost 700 meters. We are designing it using a wooden structure, which presents unique challenges due to the scale and materials involved. However, Japan has a wonderful tradition of historical wood construction, and I aim to draw inspiration from it and blend it with new technology in the construction process. This work is not only a wonderful trial for working on such a large scale but also an exciting challenge in terms of innovative construction techniques.’

    THIRTY CONTAINERS DESIGNED FOR A JOURNEY TO JAPAN

    A proposal for the Spanish Pavilion at Expo 2025 Osaka has been designed by Madrid-based architecture studio Selgascano in collaboration with FRPO. From its construction process to its forward-thinking approach to reuse and adaptability, this temporary pavilion would celebrate environmental responsibility and innovative inflatable architecture. The team faced a unique challenge when conceptualizing the pavilion — constructing anything in Japan, especially in Osaka, during the run-up to the Universal Exposition, would be daunting and expensive. The solution was to prefabricate as many elements as possible in Spain, making them more cost-effective, and then transporting everything to Osaka for assembly within a matter of weeks.

    The project was first proposed for Expo 2020 Dubai back in 2018, and a similar version has since been constructed in London‘s Design District last year.
