The Korean pavilion at Shanghai world expo 2010 wowed crowds over 400 000 per day, with exterior surfaces of the korean pavilion are clad in 2 types of pixels: han-geul pixels and art pixels. Han-geul pixels are white panels with a relief of letters in four different sizes whose combination forms the majority of the exterior, mainly the peripheral surfaces.
