A Milan Expo pavilion every day | Day 33: Russia

Russia’s contribution to the 2015 Milan Expo is this pavilion, designed by SPEECH architects. The Russian pavilion’s theme, Growing for the World. Cultivating for the Future, relates to the development of food security within the country and to the variety of cuisines and culinary traditions to be found within Russia. The plot on which the pavilion was built is long and narrow, and so the pavilion building had to adapt accordingly. One part of the structure shoots forward over the main entrance, and is clad in steel making it appear like an enormous mirror (of course, visitors can always be found underneath it taking selfies!). The structure is contemporary and good looking, with an elegant and ecologically sound wooden facade, semi-transparent ground floor interior, and green rooftop. Inside, a series of open spaces and viewing platforms give visitors different views of the pavilion before they climb to the rooftop and experience the Babylonian hanging gardens.
