Italy Pavilion for Expo Milan 2015
The design chosen for the Italy Pavilion was the winning project in an international competition adjudicated by Expo 2015 in April 2013. In total, 68 architectural practices took part, but the winning design came from Nemesi & Partners in association with Proger and BMS Progetti (for the structural engineering and installations) and Prof. Livio De Santoli (for building sustainability). The pavilion is located on the Cardo, which is one of the two perpendicular axes of the Milan Expo 2015 site, along with the Decumanus. The Italy Pavilion consists of the creation of Palazzo Italia and some temporary buildings along the Cardo. Experimentation lies at the very heart of the design. The hallmarks of Nemesi's project are the use of innovative technology and a sustainable approach. These elements merge with the expertise and skills of the Italian companies involved in building the pavilion to make it a symbolic hub of contemporary creativity.
