China unveils plans for Expo pavilion built with bamboo

Plans for the Chinese pavilion at Milan Expo 2015 were unveiled Thursday in Milan. "Expo Milano will be a precious opportunity for China and Italy," said Wang Jinzhen, commissioner general for the Chinese pavilion. "Exchange channels between our two countries will be broadened, mutual understandings be enhanced, strategic cooperation be deepened, and stable and healthy bilateral relations be promoted," Wang explained. In keeping with the fair's theme on sustainability and feeding the planet, the Chinese pavilion will for the first time reveal the country's agricultural policies, as well history and innovations behind its cuisine. The 4,590 sq metre Chinese national pavilion will use natural construction materials ranging from rice to bamboo, inspired by traditional values of harmonious coexistence between people and nature. The architectural design will echo waves of wheat, where the shapes of the natural landscape blend with those of the urban skyline, picking up the traditional lines of Chinese architecture and enhancing them with the use of modern technology.

Developed by a consortium under Tsinghua University and the Beijing Qingshang Environmental & Architectural Design Institute, the pavilion's bamboo roof will filter the natural light and reduce energy consumption. The pavilion's exhibit will give visitors a tour of five thematic areas. A 'Paradise' area will use multimedia installations to show the 24 periods in the Chinese agricultural calendar, corresponding to the varying positions of the sun and their significance in the country's culture and agricultural production. The journey will continue into the 'Human' area, which will showcase 16 typical elements of Chinese tradition and culture, from inscription on the oracle bones of Henan, the most ancient form of writing in China, to the spectacular rice terracing in the province of Yunnan, a World Heritage Site since 2013. Tea culture from the Fujian province will be on show, as will hybrid rice developed by Professor Yuan Longping. The 'Earth' area will immerse visitors in the multiform nature of the Chinese landscape, amidst immense fields, rivers and mountains which, thanks to the use of fibre optic technology, will be shown in the different seasons of the year. The final area, evocatively titled 'Harmony', will be the heart of the Chinese Pavilion and will represent its main message: the search for balance between man and nature, the core of Chinese philosophy and sought after through rational use of resources and commitment to sustainable development.

The presentation in Milan also saw Chinese and Expo representatives sign a letter of intent to launch a road show promoting Milan Expo 2015 across eight Chinese cities and provinces: Beijing, Shanghai, Guandong, Shandong, Hunan, Henan Fujian and Chongqing. A total of 500,000 Expo tickets have already been sold to Chinese tour operators - half of a one million target - with slightly less than a year to go until the fair gates open, commissioner Giuseppe Sala said Thursday. Sala added that more than three million tickets have been sold around the world as preparations for the landmark event go ahead amid a row over delays and a major graft probe.

Regions to play key role at Italy Pavilion and Expo
[IMG]http://i59.************/25t819f.jpg[/IMG]

These months are crucial for the Italian regions, which are working hard on their presentations for the 2015 Expo. The regions have three goals:
1) representing the local economies at the Italy Pavilion’s permanent exhibition;
2) making good use of their spaces in other Expo areas, particularly the so-called Cardo, or Cardinal Axis, and the “Fuori Expo” set to involve the whole city of Milan;
3) arranging programs for their local economies, and drawing a portion of the Expo 2015 foreign visitors.

Italy’s local economies and the Italy Pavilion cannot but affect each other. The regions’ contribution to the Italy Pavilion permanent exhibition has taken off and is based on Marco Balich's three conceptual guidelines, which stem fromthe ideas we collected in the regional seminars we conducted late last year. These ideas are:

The Power of Beauty: a selection of our best natural and man-made landscapes;
The Power of Limits: Expo 2015 will be a break in the tradition of Expos, which in the 20th century used to be these amazing events celebrating the power of boundless development. The contents and themes of Expo 2015 concern how we should limit growth and start thinking of a new development model. “The Power of Limits” equals to sophisticated projects that range from green chemistry to the production of homemade beer.
The Power of Know-how: the depiction of local realities should not automatically overlap with our traditional heritage; it should go beyond it.

In order to drive these powers and imbue them with sense and direction, the regions should leave aside the same old images of landscapes, societies and local communities for a moment. Boasting innovation is essential. “Feeding the planet” means questioning the evolution of our development. We should tell how this evolution is happening in local economies and focus on Italy's success, which lies in the pride and hope of the real protagonists of local economies.

The regions are going to have spaces dedicated to them at the Italy Pavilion permanent exhibition, but they are alsofiguring out a way to project themselves in other spaces at the Expo and at the “Fuori Expo”. Many regions are focussing strictly on agricultural themes that revolve around food production; but what has really redefined local realities is nutrition and the bond between humans and nature. In order for local economies to give a proper depiction of themselves, they should collaborate and exchange experiences with the industries. Instead of working separately, the regions should try to figure out what links them and regroup as larger areas: the Alps, Central Italy, the Apennine Mountains, the coastal areas and all the other areas that drive our country's production. Coalition between local economies is necessary in order for all of this to work – not only because it makes projects happen, but also because it will end up being Expo's legacy of relational assets.

More art like La Vucciria by Renato Guttuso at the Italy Pavilion


Expo 2015 organization has decided to showcase Italy’s massive historical and artistic heritage by exhibiting some of the most outstanding icons of Italy’s art tradition. First in line is Renato Guttuso’s Vucciria. The massive oil on canvas, is an absolute masterpiece by Guttuso (Bagheria 1911-Rome 1987), one of the greatest interpreters of 20th-century Italian art. In the Vucciria, painted in 1974, Guttuso gives us a vivid, rich and colourful portrayal of the lively historic town market. His painting is a perfect rendition of lively and bristling market, thanks to a sheer explosion of vehement lights and colours – the reds of the meat and tomatoes, the greens of the vegetables, the yellows of the cheese and lemons, the shades of orange of the fruit, the pink of the swordfish and cold cuts, and the silvery tones of the fish. The luxuriance of goods for sale at the market – on the right there is a quartered half-ox hanging from a hook together with a rabbit, which is a clear hint at the original idea of the Vucciria – is the pulsing heart of the painting. It is like an oversize still life, which takes up most of the space in the painting, creating a sort of horror vacui.

Poland Pavilion


On May 1st, 2015, Expo 2015 will open in Milan. It aims to be the largest international event ever organised to unite countries, institutions, companies and citizens in exploring ideas and solutions for ensuring sufficient nutritious food for the growing global population. The tradition of Universal Expositions dates back to the 19th century and the industrial revolution. Country pavilions evolved over time, taking shape in the 1920s. They were given the name "Expo" in 1967.


Country pavilions are cutting edge, architecturally significant constructions which have come to represent the country in question more than its content. Poland has a history of successful pavilions. In 2000, a team of architects from Krakow (headed by Wojciech Obtułowicz) built a postmodern pavilion encircled by an open corridor in Hanover. Another Krakow studio (Krzysztof Ingarden and Jacek Ewy) designed the Polish pavilion for Expo 2005. A cylindrical, metal building with white wicker walls was built to stand for Poland in the Japanese prefecture of Aichi. Five years later, an irregular openwork plywood building with folk patterns was constructed by architects Marcin Mostafa, Natalia Paszkowska and Wojciech Kakowski in Shanghai.


The competition for designing a national pavilion is a prestigious one. Year by year, the number of applicants grows. Despite the late decision on Polish participation in the Expo, 59 projects were submitted for review this year. The contestants included well-known studios as well as young architects. The main prize was awarded by the jury (headed by architect Włodzimierz Mucha) to the Warsaw studio 2PM, led by Piotr Musiałowski. The young architects presented a work of "youthful vitality" which brings to life the concepts of the Polish participation. The Polish pavilion will be an apple orchard. Piotr Musiałowski elaborates,


The aim of Polish participation in the Polish Pavilion project at Expo 2015 in Milan is to use things associated with the economic success of Polish agriculture. Analysing the topic, we came to one possible conclusion. As a leader in the production and export of apples, the narrative of the exposition should be based on the apple tree.


Inspired by the form of an apple crate, the architects worked out an openwork elevation which resembles stacked wooden fruit containers. The outer shell will light up at dusk.

Inside will grow an orchard with lanes of budding apple trees. Their vegetative cycle happens to coincide with the Expo. By the end of it, visitors will be able to pick the fruits. The interior walls will be covered in mirrors, creating the illusion of an orchard stretching out to the horizon.



Due to the set competition rules, the Polish pavilion is narrow in the front and wide in the back. Building on this irregularity, the architects have planned a hidden entrance lodged between the two parts of the construction. The narrow part, leading up to the orchard, will take the visitor on an olfactory and auditory trip to Poland.


The exhibition in the Polish pavilion (composed of traditional and multimedia presentations) will contribute to the Expo's mission: assuring food for the growing global population through innovative sustainable practices and new ways of collaboration. "Poland is a powerful exporter of food" Minister of Economy Janusz Piechociński affirmed.
