Johnson & Johnson Unveils Olympic Games Pavilion Featuring Authentic Qin Shi Huang Terracotta Warrior Exhibit



    
    Pavilion's Caring World Experience Features High Tech, Interactive
Exhibits

    
    BEIJING, Aug. 6 /CNW/ -- Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:   JNJ), Worldwide Partner
of the International Olympic Committee and Official Partner of the Beijing
2008 Olympic and Paralympic Games, today unveiled its Olympic Games Pavilion
on the Olympic Green. As part of the Pavilion's Caring World exhibition, which
illustrates the company's commitment to caring and creating a healthier
society throughout the world, Johnson & Johnson offers visitors to the Beijing
2008 Olympic Games the chance to experience a rare exhibit of authentic Qin
Shi Huang Terracotta Warriors.
    The Johnson & Johnson Olympic Games Pavilion and the Caring World exhibit
will be open to visitors to the Olympic green from Saturday, August 9, through
Saturday, August 23, from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m.
    The Caring World features a series of eight high-tech, interactive
exhibits that demonstrate how the Company celebrates the spirit of caring to
create a healthier world.  From the "Our Aspirations" exhibit where
individuals share stories, reflections and memories about giving and receiving
care in their lives, to the "Global Challenges" exhibit that depicts how
Johnson & Johnson engages in major global health challenges on many fronts, to
the "Vital Technologies" installation that shows how medical technology can
restore the joys of life, the Pavilion experience conveys how caring for
others makes life more meaningful.
    The culmination of the Pavilion experience is the Qin Shi Huang
Terracotta Warrior exhibit, which exemplifies the Company's commitment to the
community. In celebration of the long partnership between Johnson & Johnson
and China's Qin Shi Huang Terracotta Army Museum to protect and preserve these
precious relics, five authentic Qin Shi Huang Terracotta soldiers will be on
display at the Olympic Games Pavilion: a standing archer, a kneeling archer,
two officers and one fragmented warrior.
    "Johnson & Johnson has long been guided by the value of caring for the
health and well being of people and communities around the world, and the
interactive Caring World exhibit is both our tribute to the people whose
everyday acts of kindness make our world a more caring place and a compelling
look at the future of health care," said William C. Weldon, Chairman of the
Board and Chief Executive Officer of Johnson & Johnson. "Our exhibit also
presents five authentic Qin Shi Huang Terracotta Warriors and tells the story
of an important collaboration between Johnson & Johnson and the Qin Shi Huang
Terracotta Army museum."
    When several strains of fungi began to affect the Terracotta Army in the
late 1990s, Xian-Janssen Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (XJP) and Janssen Pharmaceutica
in Belgium, both Johnson & Johnson companies, quickly began working with
Museum scientists to establish an on-site laboratory for fungal research and
to develop the scientists' capabilities with anti-fungal solutions. The
companies also worked closely with Museum scientists to customize the
company's anti-fungal solutions to help preserve the relics.
    The Johnson & Johnson Olympic Games Pavilion is a striking,
25,000-square-foot steel and glass venue that employs an innovative,
environmentally-responsible design. The eco-friendly building's passive
cooling system includes more than 4,000 stalks of bamboo planted around the
structure and on its roof. The bamboo, along with additional landscaping and
water features, will help cool the site while creating a lush, relaxing oasis
for guests in the heart of the Olympic green.
