The living wall is purposely representative of the theme of the 2015 Expo, which is “Feeding the planet, energy for life.” The vertical wall, constructed using modular tiles fixed to an elevated steel frame, will be planted with various Israeli cereals and produce and will use a computer-controlled drip watering system for irrigation.

While exploring the pavilion, visitors may take a virtual tour of Israel, during which they will be introduced to the various forms of innovation and technology that make the tiny nation’s agricultural sector distinct from other countries. According to the architects, “The cultivation of rocky land, the growth of vegetables in the desert, the invention of new methods of irrigation, the upgrading of seed quality are part of the inception of modern agriculture marked by creativity, dare and achievements.”

The 2015 Milan Expo will take place between May 1st and October 31, 2015.
