Pavilion Zero is one of the most important pavilions at Expo Milan 2015. Visitors arriving from the North entrances will come across this pavilion first, and will have an experience taking them into the Earth’s crust. Curated by Davide Rampello and designed by Michele De Lucchi, the pavilion introduces visitors to the theme behind the whole expo: humankind’s relationship with nature and food production, conservation, and consumption. Within 12 rooms, there are a huge number of installations and interactive exhibits for visitors to enjoy, as well as videos, an 18 metre digital wall, and even an artificial tree which “grows” through the roof. The architect commented, “The shape of Pavilion Zero represents a part of the earth’s crust lifted up and placed in a prominent position. It reproduces the outline of the land with mountains, hills and a great central valley. The direct inspiration comes from the shape of the Euganean Hills located between the cities of Padua and Vicenza. The warm waters emerging from the Albano and Montegrotto Terme are proof of the shallow magma movements that create such a striking natural landscape.” The UN also has a great presence in Pavilion Zero, and aims to emphasize the link between the theme of this year’s Expo and the UN mission of ensuring that everyone around the world has access to safe and nutritious food.
