Slovenia Pavilion / EXPO Milano 2015

Project description:

The common thread in the exhibition manifests itself through a series of interactive and architectural elements throughout the pavilion. As the architects describe, “Five prismatical structures, positioned on the geometrically and dynamically designed surface, whose shape is reminiscent of a cultivated field, will represent Slovenian diverse geographical landscape and symbolize fundamental ideas of sustainable development.”

Constructed using natural materials, such as timber and glass, the pavilion contains a wide range of exhibition spaces that seek to demonstrate the country’s varied foods grown in its 24 gastronomical regions. Reflecting the plentiful lush forests that define the slovenian landscape, the wooden structure features large internal green walls that create an absorbing environment for visitors to explore.
