influenced by traditional chinese landscape paintings, construction for studio libeskind‘s vanke pavilion is underway. due to debut at milan expo 2015, the 1,000-square meter pavilion features a sinuous geometrical pattern that flows between inside and outside. incorporating technology into the exhibition, screens showing glimpses of the importance of the shitang in the everyday life of ordinary chinese citizens whilst the roof will feature a bamboo garden and panoramic views of the other pavilions and landscape. the distinctive scale skin of the building is cladded in an innovative red, shimmering metal tile which libeskind and casalgrande padana collaborated to create.

libeskind has also been commissioned to design ‘the wings’ for the upcoming event. standing at 10 meters each, the four contemporary tree-like sculptures will anchor at each corner of the central square and use innovative LED technology to display pulsating patterns and imagery. the dynamic forms fabricated of brushed aluminum will invigorate the public space with light and color with graphics relating to the four themes: health, sustainability, energy and technology.
