Placing fifth in the international competition to design the Austrian Pavilion for the 2015 Milan Expo, Paolo Venturella’s concept is designed as an extruded version of the Austrian mountain house that connects two major programs: an exhibition space and “big green-house.” To the north, the elevated exhibition space is shielded by a fabric sheathing which diminishes as it moves towards the greenhouse, south, where visitors are presented with a fresh vegetable garden, bar and restaurant that serves traditional cuisine.

“The path inside the pavilion is made in a way that people walk in a kind of loop. [...] In the pavilion the user plays an interactive role, picking and eating food in the same place, “ described the architects. “This illustrates a clear sustainable message of the self-made, genuine food.”
