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."
