Did you miss this year in Milan? You still have time to be in time. After reading our article about the best EXPO-2015 pavilions, you'll scramble for tickets instantly. On the most steep architecture of the world exhibition, read here the World Hymn of Industrialization - the international exhibition "EXPO" - this year marks 164 years. This time the organizers decided to attend to the problem of the food industry and declared the call for "feeding the planet" as the theme of the event, and the term "energy for life" was used as an explanation. We chose the 10 most interesting pavilions, looking at which I really want to believe in a bright future.
The pavilion of Great Britain
For the British pavilion, the architect WolfgangButtress (Wolfgang Buttress) created an aluminum beehive. Almost 170 thousand aluminum parts were connected to each other in a giant lattice structure with a spherical hollow center. With the onset of darkness, the design looks particularly impressive.
With what do you associate the United ArabEmirates? In the minds of architects from the Foster + Partners bureau, sand dunes are also emerging. They brought them to Milan. Wave-like labyrinth with a steel "skeleton" carries visitors to the semantic center - a circular oasis.
In the pavilion of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam inThis year bamboo lotuses blossomed. Architects from Vo Trong Nghia Architects directly turned to the theme of the exposition - "feed the planet, energy for life" - and designed the exposition with the symbols of the country: lotus flowers - symbols of optimism.
Pavilion of Brazil
In the Brazilian pavilion visitors couldget, perhaps, the most powerful emotional experience. On one of the levels instead of the floor, architects from Studio Arthur Casas + Atelier Marko Brajovic pulled a wire net. Directly below it were planted plants in the box. The delicate balance of the modern world in all its clarity.
Pavilion of Malaysia
Malaysia this year turned its pavilion into agiant-sized seeds of palm tree. At 2,000 square meters, the entire symbolic potential of the pavilion is realized - seeds as an image of growth, development and travel to the future demonstrate the full power of developing Malaysia. Nikolay Milovidov, architect - I was juston the expo. My opinion differs from the article. From the architectural point of view, only English, French and Chinese people really grasp, the rest either through the second (like palazzo italia), or simply in no way (like the same foster with emirates). Discoverings of large architectural did not see in general - everything is professionally sound. From the standpoint of design of the exposition, South Koreans are beyond competition. unkproject.ru
Chinese Pavilion, designedarchitects from Tsinghua University + Studio Link-Arc, is a wavy wooden structure lined with lattice bamboo panels. Architects say that the main goal of their work is to convey to the minds of visitors a simple idea - technological progress is possible only in alliance with nature.
The Italian Pavilion
Italy this year decided to look exclusivelyin the future and turned its pavilion Palazzo Italia into a technogenic energy-efficient oasis. Architects from Nemesis & Partners with the help of a little-known Russian eye of biodynamic cement and photovoltaic glass created giant trees that process harmful volatile substances into inert salts, and sunlight into living energy.
The Kuwait Pavilion was designed by StudioItalo Rota and demonstrates a long-known, but from that no less actual connection of traditions and modern technologies. From the side it seems that the pavilion seems to float in the air and intends to just about fly off the sky. The thing is that, creating the project, the architects were inspired by the construction of the traditional dhow boats for Kuwait.
Pavilion Vanke China
We could not ignore the creation of DanielLibeskind (Daniel Libeskind) for the corporate pavilion Vanke China. Here, three cultural directions of China - traditional dining rooms of ShiTang, the Chinese landscape and, where without them, dragons, were interwoven at once. To distinguish one from another in this construction is unlikely to work for you, and there is no need for it. The main thing is visual effectiveness, this is what Vanke China tried to achieve.
Pavilion of Russia
Well, what about us? Our pavilion was designed by architects from the famous Speech bureau, and as the main idea of the design, we have long known and already become a progressive progressive course - forward and upward. Constructively the idea was a success. The pavilion was spectacular, dynamic and memorable. Two billion rubles were spent in vain.
