Spanish photographers Iñigo Bujedo-Aguirre and Adrià Goula have shared with us images of the Spanish pavilion at the Milan Expo 2015. Designed by B720 Fermín Vazquez Arquitectos, the pavilion represents the fusion between Spain’s traditional food and innovative gastronomy. This duality creates an attractive and flexible space, which incorporates an open, patio-like area with orange trees – another symbol of Spanish culture.

The pavilion's design is inspired by that of a greenhouse, taking shape as a wooden arcade. A series of outdoor spaces represent the country’s traditional gastronomy, incorporating materials like wine corks, barrels and wicker (used for pressing olive oil). Meanwhile, a space enclosed by stainless steel and plastered with colors, is reminiscent of Spain’s most well-known products, representing the country’s gastronomic innovation.

The pavilion’s contents are centered on three themes: explaining the keys to Spain’s gastronomic success; the balance between creativity and innovation to preserve the traditional Mediterranean food; and the use of sustainable agriculture and livestock production as a way to conserve Spain’s landscape, heritage and the development of alternative tourism models.
