slovenian studio sono arhitekti has released plans for the slovenian pavilion to be debuted at the 2015 milan expo. following the theme for the pavilion, ‘I feel slovenia. green. active. healthy’, the structure combines 5 prismatic wood-clad structures each feeding into one another, set upon a striated site reminiscent of a cultivated land. with 1,910 ft2 of exhibition space, the structure exemplifies the county’s architectural capacity while demonstrating their unique and varied foods grown in its 24 gastronomical regions. reflecting the plentiful lush forests that define the slovenian landscape, the structure will be build of timber with large green walls on the interior that create a green environment for visitors to explore.
