Fly Through Milan's 2015 Expo Site in Progress With the Help of a Drone

Construction is entering into the final stages for Expo Milan 2015, with just over six months left in the five-year build. A quick fly through shows the centrepiece Italian Pavilion nearing structural completion, with national and corporate pavilions making steady progress. The video is the fifth in a series of drone-led tours of the site, created in partnership between Expo Milan and Telecom Italia.

The oblong site measures 1.1 kilometres squared and was designed by architects Stefano Boeri, Ricky Burdett and Jacques Herzog. Its cross-shaped plan reflects the ancient Roman planning practice of intersecting perpendicular axes known as the Cardo and the Decumano. By opening day on 1 May 2015, 144 national pavilions will line the boulevards of the narrow site, each assigned a slender rectangular plot and a host of environmental guidelines in keeping with the 2015 theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life."

In the video above and the four below, we've gathered all the videos in the series "Belvedere in Citta." Enjoy!
