Kuwait Pavilion - Expo Milan 2015

The challenge of Nature is the main focus of Kuwait, which introduces a pavilion dedicated to three main thematic strands: water, agriculture, and energy. The project of the pavilion performed by Italo Rota is designed as the contour of the Dhows, the traditional vessels that sail the Gulf. The exhibition is divided into three sections: the Kuwait’s traditional landscape, the scientific research designed to transform it, and the topic of food, hospitality and products of this Country. The entrance to the pavilion, entirely made of a steel structure, is characterized by large sails that invite the guest to enter, whereas the lateral walls of the complex, amounting to 2790 square metres, present large greenhouses for the hydroponic production of vegetables, which are then consumed in the restaurant behind.
