EXPO 2015 Milano - Italy

Expo Milano 2015 in the italian pavillion at the 14th international architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia The 2015 Universal Exhibition underscores and renews its attention to the international architecture scene with a significant presence in Venice during the world’s premiere architecture exhibition.                                                                                                                                                                        The event will draw in over 178,000 visitors among design professionals and researchers, with 48% represented by the new generation, and 65 countries, of which 10 are new entries, all focusing on the theme “Fundamentals” proposed by the exhibition director, Rem Koolhaas. Expo 2015 will also dedicate the specific project “Biennale Sessions” to universities and a series of “Architecture Meetings” to the most representative voices of our time.   Milan is a perfect example of a “workshop of the modern” within the Italian Pavilion exhibition, where the architectural and urban history, from the past century to the present day, clearly testifies to the dynamic transformation of local structures wrought by major projects and how this process continues today with the Universal Exhibition. In the first hall of the Tese delle Vergini in the Arsenale, the exhibition space for the hotly awaited planetary event that Milan will host from 1 May to 31 October 2015 on a 100-hectare site was designed by MoDus Architects under the supervision of Matteo Gatto, Director of Thematic Areas for Expo Milano 2015, and Luisa Collina, professor at the Milan Polytechnic. The exhibition concept is based on the correspondence between two themes – Expo Milano 2015 and the Italian Pavilion – , two axes of the master plan – the Decumanus, which will feature over 145 participating countries, and the Cardo, venue for the Italy Pavilion and prevalently national institutions – and two monoliths – one horizontal to put the international pavilions “on stage” and the other vertical to describe the Italian Pavilion in depth.  Expo Milano 2015 will be narrated through images of the itineraries that will develop the central theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. Renderings and scale models will document the nine Cluster projects – innovative exhibition spaces which, for the first time in the history of the Universal Exhibitions, gather within a single architectural and thematic project over 75 countries that share the production of a particular food, or that are interested in developing a shared, mutually representative theme. There will be many video contributions from the architects who developed the master plan and the designers of the pavilions and Thematic Areas. In the Laboratory of the Future, created in consultation with “2040 EXPOST: Tracciare futuri possibili”, five scenarios for the Expo Site at the conclusion of Expo Milano 2015 will be presented, developed by five different new-generation Italian architecture studios: Studio Albori, Ma0, Openfabric, Barozzi Veiga, and Yellow Office. This section will also feature a focus on the Italian presence at Expo Milano 2015 as an opportunity to promote the “seedbed” of young and innovative talents who represent quality scions growing from the roots of long tradition, capable of transforming the entrepreneurial, architectural and cultural landscape of Italy. They will be represented in a series of videos that narrate the architectural and creative development of the Italian Pavilion at the Universal Exhibition by Nemesi & Partner and artistic director Marco Balich, respectively.   14th international architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia web site
