DIVERSITY, Japan Pavilion, Expo Milano 2015 from teamLab on Vimeo.
Japan, a country surrounded by mountains and the sea, undergoes many changes with the passing of the four seasons. Rivers go through great changes in terms of the volume of water that passes through them, from the melting snow in the spring to the rainy season and typhoon season. In Japan, the distance between the mountains and the coast is very short, with very few plains along the way, causing many short fast-flowing streams to form throughout the islands.
This art installation uses waterfalls to represent water, a symbol that is at the heart of Japan’s food culture.

This artwork seeks to convey large volumes of information related to the great diversity found in Japanese food. In order to achieve this, it shows a gigantic waterfall that can be viewed from all around 360 degrees, displaying a large quantity of images of food.

Visitors can touch the images that flow down the waterfall to read in the image, as well as some detailed information, into their smartphones, so they can take them home with them afterward.

This art installation tackles the challenge of making sure that people can share their emotions and experiences, while offering the convenience of providing large amounts of information. teamLab achieves this by creating a symbolic waterfall that allows many visitors to share the same experience within the same space, and by giving them the ability to link this experience with their own personal smartphones.

食の多様性という大量の情報を来場者に伝える。そのために、デジタルテクノロジーを使い、食に関連する大量のコンテンツの画像を、360度どこからでも鑑賞できる巨大な映像の滝に流すことよって、食の多様性(DIVERSITY)を表現しました。

食の源である水を、そして、山と海に囲まれた日本の水を、象徴的に、滝で表現しています。来場者は、流れてきた画像にタッチすることで、瞬間的に、画像と詳細の情報が自分のスマートフォンへと取り込み、持ち帰ることができます。

同じ空間にいる来場者が体感を共有できるアートと、個人が持つスマートフォンを繋げることによって、感動と、大量の情報に対する利便性を共存させるチャレンジを行っています。

HARMONY, Japan Pavilion, Expo Milano 2015 from teamLab on Vimeo.
Paddy fields, at the background of the origin of Japan’s food culture, were grown and developed in areas at differing height levels such as the mid to high river basins. This is reflected in the terraced rice-fields that are so characteristic of Japan, a country surrounded by mountains and the sea.
This process was made possible thanks to the beautiful harmony that has existed between humans and nature.

In order to show the fact that paddy fields have prospered in places with differing heights, as well as through the harmonious relationship between humans and nature, the space of the exhibition room has been filled with screens resembling ears of rice. These screens have been installed at a variety of different heights, from the knees up to the waist, creating an interactive projection space that seems to spread out infinitely at various heights and directions.
The projected images change in line with the visitors’ movements as they wander through the room.

This interactive art installation creates a space where visitors look as if they are wading their way through the ears of rice. As they wander around, they can experience a passing of nature that is so characteristic of Japan across the period of a whole year.

日本の食の原風景である「水田」は、山と海に囲まれた日本では棚田に代表されるように、河川の中上流域など、高低差がある場所で発達しました。
そしてそれは、人と自然が共生(HARMONY)することで生まれてきました。

水田が、「高低差」のある場所で発達してきたことや、「人と自然が共生」することで発達してきたことを表現するため、腰やひざ下など、さまざまな高さでつくった稲穂に見立てたスクリーンで空間を埋め尽くし、腰から膝ほどの高さに映像が無限に広がるインタラクティブな映像空間をつくりました。
映像は、鑑賞者の位置やふるまいに合わせて、変化していきます。

来場者は、まるで稲穂を分け入るかのように、インタラクティブな映像空間の中を分け入り、歩き回りながら、1年を通した、象徴的な日本の自然を体感します。

Field of Hope - Theme Installation of China Pavilion at Milan EXPO 2015 from Danqing Shi on Vimeo.
“The Field of Hope” is an immersive lighting installation of 2015 Milan EXPO China Pavilion. It is designed by Tsinghua University team led by new media artist Danqing Shi. Consisted with 30,000 metal “straws”, this “field” covers the whole exhibition area and merges with the architecture. Each straw has an LED tip with a diffuser functioning as one 3-dimensional pixel. Viewing from above those pixels form a large motion images floating on top of a wheat field.

“The Field of Hope” provides visitors two perspectives to experience:
1. First person perspective: a descending slop at the entrance leads visitor to gradually merge into the “field”, as visitors going down, the relative heights of the plants grow up representing the season changes. While visiting the exhibition items embedded in the field, visitors may wonder why the light straw tips blink different colors.
2. Third Person perspective: visitors then walk up through an ascending ramp to the panorama platform at the second floor. With a broad view of the field from above, the blinking pixels now can be recognized together as one entire image rendering China’s diverse landscapes and an abstract expression of different forms of farm field.

The Wings / Daniel Libeskind at Milan EXPO 2015 from ArchDaily on Vimeo.


Daniel Libeskind designs Milan Expo pavilion for Chinese developer Vanke from Dezeen on Vimeo.
See more architecture and design movies at dezeen.com/movies.

New York-based architect Daniel Libeskind has proposed a twisted reptilian structure for the first ever expo pavilion for a stand-alone Chinese company.

Designed for Vanke, China's largest property developer, the Shitang pavilion is already under construction at the Milan Expo 2015 site, and was conceived by Daniel Libeskind as a sinuous volume with a scaly outer skin.

Ancient Chinese teachings and Renaissance art are cited as some of the inspirations for the building, whose twisted shape is intended to create a "continuous flow" between inside and outside spaces. A staircase will also curve around the exterior, leading up to a rooftop terrace.

Responding the Expo theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, New York exhibition designer Ralph Appelbaum and Chinese graphic designer Han Jiaying will work with Libeskind to create an interior described by Vanke as a "virtual forest". This will feature 300 multimedia screens, offering a look at the role of the dinner table in Chinese communities.

“In keeping with the theme of Expo Milano, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, we proposed the concept 'Shitang' for the Vanke Pavilion,” said Vanke Chairman Wang Shi.

"Shitang in Chinese means 'table'. We thus want to express our idea of urbanisation and community through the experience of food. Indeed, food is one of the most effective ways to understand a culture: the ritual of eating and talking together is important in every community because by eating together it is possible to get to know each other better," he said.

Libeskind has previously said that he would not work in China on ethical grounds and urged architects to "think twice" about building in the country. Later that same year it was revealed by UK architecture newspaper BD that his practice was working on a 25,000-square-metre public building in Hong Kong.

"This is not a dogmatic idea for Daniel," Nina Libeskind told BD in 2008. "Its a personal thing for him. We've seen what has happened in Tibet, but there is a rule of law in Hong Kong that Daniel is comfortable with."

China unveiled the design for its national pavilion earlier this year. Designed by New York firm Studio Link-Arc and a team from Tsinghua University, it will feature an undulating roof and an indoor field.

German Pavilion Expo Milano 2015 from SCHMIDHUBER on Vimeo.
“Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” is the theme for Expo 2015. The German pavilion clearly orients itself to this leitmotif – under the “Fields of Ideas” motto. Germany reveals itself as a vibrant, fertile “landscape” filled with ideas on future human nutrition. The pavilion vividly illustrates just how important dealing respectfully with nature is to our ongoing food supply, while inviting visitors to take action themselves.

Visitors can discover the “Fields of Ideas” along two different routes. They can either stroll along the pavilion’s freely accessible upper level, which invites them to relax and enjoy. Or they can explore the exhibition inside the pavilion, which addresses such topics as the sources of nutrition, through to food production and consumption in the urban world.

German Pavilion Expo Milano 2015 - Solar Trees from SCHMIDHUBER on Vimeo.
The central design element of the pavilion are expressive membrane-covered shelters in the shape of sprouting plants: the “Idea Seedlings.” Their construction and bionic design vocabulary are inspired by nature. The Idea Seedlings link the interior and exterior spaces, a blend of architecture and exhibition, and at the same time provide shade for visitors in the hot Italian summer.

By integrating cutting-edge organic photovoltaic (OPV) technology, the seedlings become Solar Trees. The German Pavilion is the first large international architecture project to use these innovative new products. In contrast with a project using conventional solar modules, the German Pavilion architects had the opportunity to do more than just incorporate existing technology. They had free rein to design the flexible, OPV membrane modules to match their own creative ideas, and to integrate them into the overall design of the pavilion.

Zumtobel illuminates breathe.austria Austrian pavilion at EXPO Milano 2015 from Zumtobel Lighting on Vimeo.
"Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life"– this is the theme of Expo Milano 2015, which focuses on sustainability produced food and renewable energy. Austria's contribution is dedicated to the most elementary means of life: air. In breathe.austria, architecture, nature, culture and research are merged to create an inspiring experience – visitors find themselves in the midst of a natural forest originating from Austria.


Milano Expo2015/ Temporary pavillion from A2BC on Vimeo.
The project for a temporary pavilion for the Milano Expo 2015 takes shape in a radical gesture, communicatively evoking a clear visual identity, which is synthesized in a distinctly recognizable archetype. The portal acts as a direct quotation that abandons the significance of its historically commemorative purpose, to create a shared dimension; a shared public space. "Ex Machina" defines a place, an axis, an intersection.

The design intends to create two levels of shared public space; immediately at the street level and above, granting visitors a rarely accessible view of the city .

The strength of its composition, pace of the structure, and its permeability and lightness establish a clear architecture in which therole of the public is the same as the surrounding monuments.
