According to last rumors, the pavilion designed by archistar Daniel Libeskind should remain on the Expo site.



The concept for the Vanke Pavilion incorporates three ideas drawn from Chinese culture related to food: the shi-tang, a traditional Chinese dining hall; the landscape, the fundamental element to life; and the dragon, which is metaphorically related to farming and sustenance. All three of these concepts are incorporated in the Vanke Pavilion’s exhibition, architecture and program.

Situated on the southeast edge of the Lake Arena, the 800-square meter pavilion appears to rise from the east, forming a dynamic, vertical landscape. The design features a sinuous geometrical pattern that flows between inside and outside. A grand staircase, clad in warm grey concrete, carves through the red serpentine form and guides visitors to the upper level. A roof-top observation deck with a planted garden will provide stunning views of the lake and near-by Italian pavilion.

The pavilion is clad in more than 4,000 red metalized tiles that Libeskind designed with the Italian company Casalgrande Padana. The geometric ceramic panels not only create an expressive pattern that is evocative of a dragon-like skin, but also possess highly sustainable self-cleaning and air purification properties. The three-dimensional surface is coated with a metallic coloration that changes as light and viewpoints shift. At times it will appear as deep crimson, then a dazzling gold, and even, at certain angles, a brilliant white. The tiles are installed with a state-of-the-art cladding support system that gives a rhythmic pattern and mathematical form to an otherwise supple, torquing shape. Two spiraling stairs, echoing the form, ascend the pavilion to the south, and to the north from the Lake Arena entrance, serving both as circulation and seating.

Other pavilions which remain on the Expo site

The Waterstone designed by architect Michele De Lucchi







It is an evocative construction, resembling three polished stones with four waterfalls cascading between their connections. The lamellar wood bearing frame comprises nine large, arched portals at five-metre intervals. Wooden beams and boards join the portals and leave the wood framework unfaced like the inside of a barn. Two superimposed walls protect the outer shell: the inner one protects against rain and wind, the outer one shades and shapes the building. Between the walls a cavity is formed in which air rises by natural induction to prevent heat from penetrating. The outer cladding is in white tiles distanced to create empty spaces for natural lighting. At night, a LED system creates an interesting lighting engineering effect. The interior is on two levels. The ground floor accommodates the general public, with an innovative branch offering the latest updated services, and a multimedia artistic installation by Studio Azzurro representing the bank’s commitment to a cultural and social environment. Located on the upper level are spaces allocated to events and meetings.

China Corporate United Pavilion designed by Tonji Architectural Design





The image of power that arises from the breaking of ground to the sprouting of seeds has inspired the design of the China Corporate United Pavilion (CCUP). The life that comes from the green heart, that contains the auditorium space, transforms into the spiral of a DNA chain tracing an upward path, to then take on an elliptical form: the ramp gently accompanies visitors upwards towards the open spaces of the Italian-Chinese garden and the terrace. The pavilion is a temporary construction for these six months. Its simple geometric shape of an outer rectangle – aesthetically lightweight and breathable thanks to the breathable membrane and glass walls – covers the harmonious inner curves that represent the vitality of Chinese enterprises.

I really miss the EXPO. Really was a great experience for me when I visited it last summer.

One day in Milan and the Expo in October 2015 (pics & video at the end)

Very well visited, most pavilions had more than one hour of waiting time...
