50 years anniversary of the world exposition 1958 in Brussels - THE PAVILLON OF TEMPORARY HAPPINESS

For CAMERA CRITTERS go here



More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners


To celebrate the 50 years of the world exposition which took place here in Brussels, quite a lot of activities are being done and expositions and movies are showing a nice choice of important visitors or items from 1958 ! (You can read the whole activity program here and look at the Official blog of the Atomium & Expo 58)



Just in front of the Atomium a pavillon had been built with 30.000 beer cases !



It looks quite impressive. It is called "Pavillon of temporary happiness"

Oooooooh! What a fun day! It DOES look like a lego building! Oh, how I HATED swimming caps when I was a kid! I would still hate them today - but I think they've been outlawed now! LOL! (well, they should be!) Glad you got your happy thoughts into the time capsule!

Wow! A pavillion of temporary happiness built with beer crates! For someone who doesn't drink, I don't feel the happiness. hehe....

But it's an amazing structure! I would love to visit it.

hahaha.... did you ask Mr Gattino to take a picture of you typing with your toes and standing on your head?
It would be a great WW entry! :D

What a really neat set of shots! I can't even pick a favorite out of all of them...the pavilion is awesome, the swim caps are fun, the fountain is great, and the last one is so cool - they are all wonderful!

i have been there once and i remember seeing the europe park in front from inside the atomium. that's a very interesting building.
but i love that pavillion of happiness more now..good idea and very creative, you are right to say you feel as if you are inside a big lego construction .. now what happens if it rains.. ?? then you'll get all wet inside?
hmmm i wonder what your definition of happiness is *wink, wink*
