From the architect. This Welcome Pavilion provides space for ticketing, information and membership services at the inaugural Slow Food Nation event. The reclaimed shipping container, topped with plants and a windmill, creates an iconic image while providing the introductory public interface for the festival.

Part billboard, part box-office, and part way-finding beacon, the pavilion announces the Slow Food movement’s dedication to sustainability and social responsibility.
