U.S.A. FOR EXPO MILANO 2015: A PAVILION TO FEED THE PLANET

U.S.A. FOR EXPO MILANO 2015: A PAVILION TO FEED THE PLANET

American Food 2.0: United to Feed the Planet” is the leading theme of U.S.A. pavilion at Expo Milano 2015. Designed by the renowned architect James Biber, the American section at the Universal Exposition dedicated to food & nutrition occupies a 35,000 square foot space (the whole event covering a 3.6 million square foot surface). Its structure is meant to recall the traditional American farm, to which agricultural development in the US much owes. The intent goes far beyond a mere historical reconstruction, though: technological innovation, science, business and enterpreneurial attitude will be at the core of the American exposition. Beyond including a vertical farm supposed to be harvested on a daily base, the building will certainly impress visitors with further features such as:
transparent technology wall that shows the inner workings of the pavilion
– wood repurposed from the original Coney Island boardwalk
– installations, events, and exhibits throughout
rooftop terrace and cafe
– gathering space, courtyard, and VIP meeting spaces
retail merchandising space
grove of oak trees, the national tree of the USA
The American pavilion is one of the 145 structures representing each participant country at Expo Milano 2015. For more details, tickets, venues and trasportations between Rome and Milan don’t hesitate to contact HotelRome.net!
