U.S.A.’s spirit at Expo Milano 2015 is summarized by the pay-off “American Food 2.0: United to Feed the Planet”, its body having the shape of a magnificent 35,000 square foot space designed by the architect James Biber of New York. The building is a multi-level experience that flows with activity from top to bottom, side to side. It includes a massive vertical farm that will be harvested daily. “I’ve drawn inspiration from the straightforward, ‘honest’ agricultural buildings that are part of our nation’s history,” says the architect “It is a very simple building, and when people look at it, they’ll instantly understand exactly how it was made.”
“There’s a constant dialogue between nature and science in the USA Pavilion – and the proposition that they’re not on opposite ends of the spectrum, but very much part of a cooperative system,” the award-winning architect continued. “America’s food story is rich and innovative – much more so than most people realize. We want visitors to understand and appreciate how complex and sophisticated our story is.”
U.S.A. pavilion is one of the 145 buildings which are currently being built for Expo Milano 2015, the 6-month Universal Exposition focused on the theme of food & nutrition. For more info check out the official website or follow us on Carlito Hotel & Hostel blog!
