Milan Expo 2015: Photographic Updates Of The Pavilions In Progress

This tour - made possible through the Expo's Instagram account - gives us fresh insight into the development of projects like Daniel Libeskind's pavilion for Vanke, which is clad in a self-cleaning, air purifying, metalised tile, to Nemesi's 'smog-eating pavilion' for Italy. With the opening of the 2015 Universal Exposition set to take place in a little over one month's time Milan, for a six month period, will become a global showcase for the thematic study of food. With over 140 participating nations tackling the question of "how to be able to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food for everyone, while respecting the planet and its equilibrium," new innovations in architecture, engineering and material design will be central to the exhibitions.

See snapshots of the pavilions under construction after the break.
