The Finnish pavilion at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai received a modern shingle cladding made from UPM ProFi. Finland took part in the Expo with the Giant’s Kettle pavilion.
The innovative pavilion, which was built on a 3,000 square metre lot, stresses the importance of minimal environmental load in its material selection.
The surface area of the Giant’s Kettle’s exterior cladding is 3,700 square metres, for which UPM produced about 25,000 injection-moulded shingles. The size of each shingle is 350 x 600 mm.
