Epcot World Showcase is a series of pavilions centred around a beautiful reflective lagoon, this concept strives to presents the culture and architectural identity of the eleven countries around the world. Nations are consulted and even encouraged to design the pavilion in order to present a realistic view of there culture.
How does one effectively display 9 million km2 and 35 million people, consisting of hundreds of cultures, religions, and races, within less than 4 acres of space?
Inspired by an unrealized concept developed by Walt Disney, [Epcot] opened on October 1, 1982. Spanning 305 acres (123 ha), more than twice the size of the Magic Kingdom park, Epcot is dedicated to the celebration of human achievement, namely technological innovation and international culture, and is often referred to as a “permanent world’s fair”. The park is divided into two sections: Future World, made up of eight pavilions, and World Showcase, themed to 11 world nations.
