Osaka is a city where nature and technology live alongside the past and present in perfect harmony, which is why I'm very impressed with the designs for the USA Pavilion at Expo 2025 in Japan!
Trahan Architects unveiled the design for the USA Pavilion – and it did not disappoint. The Osaka-Kansai expo will highlight American architecture, innovation, culture, and industry, with a focus on celebrating accomplishments across diverse fields.
If you’re like me and a big fan of sustainability, space exploration, education, and entrepreneurship, this exhibition is for you! After serving as the United States Commissioner General at the USA Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, my love for international expos and the innovation and connection they yield has increased tenfold.
The USA Pavilion will be created with sustainable materials and located next to the East Gate and adjacent to the Forest of Tranquility. Its design will be open and simple, featuring a large plaza with LED screens that display panoramic views of various American landscapes.
The architecture of the plaza is inspired by Japanese footbridges and aims to bring balance and lead guests to an unforgettable experience. The World Expo will run from April 13th 2025 to October 13th 2025 and offers an unparalleled opportunity to share American values with a global audience.
The Land Of The Rising Sun is where you know you will be treated with hospitality, friendship, and respect. Japan offers inventors, problem solvers, and outside-the-box thinkers the warmest welcome imaginable, making it the perfect place for the next Expo.
As the overarching theme is “Designing Future Society for our Lives,” it’s also a great chance to engage with others in a spirited and diplomatic way to examine solutions to our planet’s most pressing problems. Save the date to come and experience one of the best showcases of contemporary American excellence!
I initially launched Bob Clark Beyond in 2020 to motivate and mentor others. Now, I am thrilled to announce that I am venturing on a deeper mission to spark inspiration and connection with a NEW LOOK!
The death of Alexei Navalny is a tragic and unnecessary loss. Alexei was a prominent Russian opposition leader and a strong advocate for democracy and human rights.
What does FDR have to do with current events and my gluteus medius tendon tear? A lot. For one thing, my tear has provided a great perspective for me after knowing that FDR was stricken with polio at age 39. It has also created a sense of optimism because of how he handled his much, much worse situation and endured his disability with such grace that he became the poster child for “people of determination,” a phrase I heard often while in Dubai.
