The title of the German Pavilion at Expo is Fields of Ideas. It is a large, airy exhibition area, very full of content and in-depth analyses
When speaking about the German pavilion at Expo Milano 2015, it is certainly not the case of mentioning the usual, useless commonplaces on the precision and punctiliousness of the Germans. However, one needs to highlight something: among the countries participating in the World Fair, Germany is certainly among those that have interpreted the main theme “feeding the planet, energy for life”, with more attention and precision. And during a visit, you’ll get this element more or less immediately.
Right from its design, the Pavilion is inspired by sustainability, giving up on the idea of raising a grandiose building: using architectural language, they have tried to interpret the German landscape, with is fields and meadows, from an aerial view. Stylised trees have been inserted in this landscape, “seeds of ideas”, that start from the ground floor of the exhibition area and then appear and tower above the roof, opening up with large leaves. Just like real leaves, these membranes are a source of energy for the Pavilion: they are in fact equipped with very thing solar panels, one of the avantgarde technologies produced in Germany, which supply the necessary electricity to light up the structure in the evening.
