responding to the event’s overall theme of ‘feeding the planet, energy for life’, slovenia has presented their national pavilion at milan’s expo 2015. designed by sono architects, the temporary building is composed of five prismatic structures, whose shape is reminiscent of a cultivated slovenian landscape.

constructed using natural materials, such as timber and glass, the pavilion contains a wide range of exhibition spaces that seek to demonstrate the country’s varied foods grown in its 24 gastronomical regions. reflecting the plentiful lush forests that define the slovenian landscape, the wooden structure features large internal green walls that create an absorbing environment for visitors to explore.
