Malaysian Pavilion World Expo 2015, Public Spaces-others

Project Status: Completed

Feeding the Planet, Energy for Live, the theme of EXPO Milano 2015, is a clear and succinct call to the world to rethink the way food is produced and to recreate healthier and more sustainable farming and food production for the benefit of mankind. This powerful statement underpins the design of the pavilion to form an architecture that not only emphasizes better and more advanced and sustainable food practices but at the same time celebrates the countrys rich food culture, gastronomical diversity and health benefits from our food source. Conceptually, the building seed form expresses the food source of South Asia, derived from rain-forest seeds that we celebrate it and its rich diversity. The formation of the four seeds takes one through a kaleidoscope journey with each seed encompassing visitors with different experience and level of engagement at the same time bring to bear our attention to the symbiotic relationship we have with the rain-forest. Stronger than steel, Glulam which is a sustainably sourced hardwood timber has been pieced together with the utmost care and precision. Each member of the laminated wood was manufactured in Malaysia, then packed and shipped to Italy, to be carefully pieced together. One piece at a time.
