Can anybody identify this pavilion from Expo 2010 last year in Shanghai? I want to call it the Russet Potato Pavilion.

It's *not* the Israel Pavilion, which featured a remarkably similar design, albeit with the glass and stucco traded positions.

Also there was a location called either the Expo Axle or Expo Axis. Which was it? I suspect the latter.

Actually, that is the Israel Pavilion. I have a few photos of it at:

It was the "Expo Axis" and was basically a long zone from one of the entrances to the water. It had mostly shopping and restaurants:

I see now- thanks Urso!.

I was confused, comparing it to a photo of the Israel Pavilion that was from the opposite side (and the brown Russet Potato color didn't match the white in the other picture). I guess it was just the position of the sun making it look darker in some exposures.
