China Pavilion for the 2015 Milan Expo

China Pavilion for the 2015 Milan Expo


Rejecting the typical notion of a pavilion as an object in a plaza, the China Pavilion is instead conceived as a field of spaces. Designed as a cloud hovering over a "land of hope", the pavilion is experienced as a sheltered public plaza beneath a floating roof. The roof’s distinctive profile creates an iconic image for the project and fosters a unique presence within the Expo.
