No I don't have a web-page. I suppose there must be something about it at
the official Expo sight, but not having internet at home I haven't looked...
It will be built between oct.2007-may 2008.
Just got an email from the arquitect that the builders contracted to do the
job are already trying to change the design...putting in a lot of iron
(original design with wood and bamboo structure)...I hope the design doesn't
get too distorted by the builders...what a mess it could be!
