it has been announced that vo trong nghia architects will complete vietnam’s national pavilion for expo milan 2015. responding to the encompassing theme of ‘feeding the planet, energy for life’, the project examines globally increasing population levels, and the strain this places on our environment. the temporary bamboo structure references the lotus, vietnam’s national flower and a symbol of optimism for the future.

exhibition space is articulated around a shallow pool that surrounds the design, cooling air and providing a pleasant micro-climate. guests cross the water on lotus leaf-shaped platforms which provide space for external dining and recreation. a screen wall around the pavilion folds away on warm days to allow for naturally ventilated open air galleries. in order to reduce the lightweight building’s environmental impact, the prefabricated bamboo structure can be easily dissembled and reused after the event.

  • Hello, I’m Italian and I live in Vietnam.

    Please consider that, unlike in Vietnam, a large surface of still water will attract lots of mosquitos in Milan.

    Cheers!
