The designers found inspiration in classic Soviet architecture, as well as the country’s past pavilions, and paired that with sustainable materials meant to act as a memorable structure that evokes Russia’s vast expanses and forests. The national spirit is conveyed through the rhythmic use of wooden elements that reference the country’s rugged landscapes.
