ITALIAN PAVILION – EXPO SHANGHAI 2010

Shanghai Expo 2010 Italian Pavilion by baukuh

Shanghai Expo Italian Pavilion

The pavilion is the main product that each Country shows at an international expo. In this sense, before being a building, a pavilion is a model, an example of its own culture. A pavilion does not host any function, it does not satisfy any necessity: it is a model for other possible buildings, a building that represents a whole class of buildings.

“The pavilion has to represent the Italian style”

The pavilion building design proposed by the architects makes explicit reference to a classic tradition, based on roman and Renaissance architecture. This classic tradition assumes value with regards to the contemporary city for two reasons: as effectiveness and fine mechanics of the space, it defines a whole of architectural possibilities at disposal of the city; as public and universal grammar, it gives a code open to new evolutions and independent from personal predilections.
