BizBash contributing photographer Eric Powell is in Beijing for the Olympics this month, keeping us posted on the different parties and marketing iniatives in and around China's capital. Yesterday he stopped by Samsung's OR@S Pavilion in the Olympic Green. Built in the shape of a seedling, the pavilion incorporates green elements like artificial grass made from recycled car tires and sun pipes providing solar power to cell phone charging stations. The pavilion is open daily to athletes, their families, and spectators looking to check out Samsung products or just relax.
