The idea behind the winning theme is the typical Italian square or Piazza, and the lively community that interacts within and around it.

The open air piazza is located on the ground floor and leads to other functional spaces like 2 500 meters of exhibition areas, offices, meeting rooms for a total of 2 350 square meters.

And an auditorium as well as a second covered square of around 2 000 square meters, all connected to the openairpiazzaby means of a series of suspended bridges.

Each of the four volumesis intendedto be independent, like four branches on a tree in perfect theme with the – ‘tree of life’ concept that the competitionwas based on.

Needless to say that sustainability was another very important aspect. The special heating and cooling system makes sure that the inside temperature remains mild, glass surfaces have a second ‘skin’ made out of a special cement-resin.

While roof gardens with plants and trees and green terraces will be meeting places for visitors to the Milan Expo Pavilion.
