Spanish architect Francisco Mangado's design for the Spanish Pavilion at Zaragoza's Expo exemplifies contemporary construction techniques and is instantly recognisable by its massive collection of ceramic columns that have been incorporated into the structure. The total project is examined here, from the background of the site and the building's initial conception, to the construction processes, specific design details and the use of energy saving technologies. The Expo Zaragoza 2008 was held under the motto of Ôwater and sustainability', and in the spirit of this theme a thin insert is included with a collection of short writings on various Ôarchitectures for a sustainable planet'.
