Stunning Chinese Pavilion for Milan Expo 2015 resembles billowing wheat fields
Entitled ‘The Land of Hope,’ the project integrates Chinese traditional architecture with modern technologies.
Its floating roof was designed as a timber structure that references the Chinese traditional ‘raised-beam’ system’ and shingled panels evoke terra cotta roof constructions and give the pavilion a unique silhouette. A sheltered public plaza beneath comprises cultural and exhibition programs.
An exterior waiting area leads to a themed exhibition space with interactive installations and cultural offerings from 40 Chinese provinces.
A multimedia installation formed from a matrix of LED stalks mimics the form of wheat and acts as a centerpiece of the exhibition. From there, visitors are guided up to a panoramic viewing platform which offers stunning views of the Expo grounds.
