A Milan Expo pavilion every day | Day 75: The Rice Cluster

If you’re looking for Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, or Sierra Leone at Expo, you’ll find them inside the Rice Cluster, alongside the special Basmati Pavilion. This Cluster represents one of the staple foods for over half of the world’s population, and guides visitors on a journey through the world of rice. As well as showing how the crop is grown – with paddy fields containing different varieties of rice around the exhibit – the Cluster offers a glimpse into the innovative cultivation techniques of people around the world over the years. Mirrored walls and panels give a kaleidoscopic effect and make the 3,5 thousand square metre space seem even larger than it is, conveying the vastness of rice fields around the globe. Kiosks in the public area also offer tasters of rice products to hungry visitors.
