China: Ductal® in the Pavillon de la France

For the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, Lafarge is partnering the Pavillon de la France which has been designed and constructed by architect Jacques Ferrier.


A symbol of France and its art of living, the Pavillon de la France has benefitted from the most up-to-date innovations in architectural design, building materials and respect for the environment. Based on the concept of the "sensual city", it evokes all 6 senses: taste, sight, hearing, touch, smell and balance/movement.


The Lafarge space, representing touch, was produced using Ductal®, the Group's ultra-high performance fiber-reinforced concrete, and PLAtec® plasterboard.
