My Green World: Gigantic Orange Seed-Shaped Pavilion Unveiled at Dutch Floriade Expo

My Green World is an impressive seed-shaped pavilion encased in sustainably-harvested Finnish hardwood. The ambitious project from 2D3D was originally commissioned for the Floriade 2012 Expo in the Netherlands by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation. It certainly is an innovative design - the 15-meter-high organic form is made from pre-cut wood units that were built off-site and assembled into a grid with large windows peeking throughout the structure.
2D3D ‘s My Green World pavilion is stained bright orange (a color traditionally associated with the Dutch monarchy), creating a dramatic statement. The massive form stands out against the surrounding landscape, attracting a host of visitors to the exhibition.
The interior will feature a range of environmental displays throughout the expo , and it will be used as office space afterwards. During the day the prefab structure is flooded with daylight, and at night it’s illuminated by LED lights. An elevated bridge creates a separate floor.
