Wood ceilings, wood panelling, walls, panels, flooring… wood will be the featured material in some of the great pavilions at the coming Expo Milan 2015.
If what you like is wood and architecture, the events where you can best enjoy the perfect communion between the two are the great International Exhibitions. Perhaps because of the ephemeral nature of these architectural projects, or the need to show a special sensitivity towards sustainability, the fact is that large wood projects are a majority among the pavilions representing the different countries of the world in these great events.
With the motto “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” the Milan 2015 Universal Exposition will open its doors from 1 May 1 to 31 October with dozens of spectacular pavilions, designed by great architects, and built in record time, which will show to the world the incomparable beauty of its great wood ceilings and their impossible inner linings.
These are some of the wood projects that have most drawn our attention:
– The German Pavilion, (the work of Lennart Wiechell, Schmidhuber, Mila & Partner, Nüssli), and its wood walls and floors. You can see photos of this pavilion in our Pinterest Board, in our Facebook album, and in our Google+ album.
– The Azerbaijan Pavilion, (by Simmetrico Network, Arassociati Architecttura and AG&P), and its wood ceilings and exterior cladding made of gigantic wood slats. Photos of this pavilion in our Pinterest Board, in our Facebook album, and in our Google+ album.
– The United Arab Emirates Pavilion, ( by Foster + Partner), and the undulating wall coverings made of wood. Photos of this pavilion in our Pinterest Board, in our Facebook album, and in our Google+ album.
