Key Information about Expo Milano 2015
What are the features of the Russian Pavilion?
The Russian Pavilion includes an area of more than 4,000 square meters. Formed with traditional Soviet and Russian Pavilions, the complete structure is unique with ample space and a dynamic design. In fact, the pavilion resembles the earlier pavilions of Universal Expositions, dating back to 1851 when the country took part in the first-ever ‘Great Exhibition’ in London.
Furthermore, Russian pavilions have been revered by all around the world for its exclusive design and architecture. Even many countries embody their trademark structural design to host their own exhibition. Russia has been presented with numerous awards and recognitions including the Grand Prix in Paris (1937) and the Silver Medal in Shanghai (2010).
Now, the Expo Milano 2015 will be hosted in a multifaceted building, depicting the trendy culture of modern architecture. Not to mention, the entire structure is a wonderful example of excellent craftsmanship. Additionally, during the 20th century, Russia has achieved considerable successes for its exhibition spaces. However, all those spaces have a common factor – vibrant and intrepid architectural elements with elite-level engineering solutions.
To add to these facts, the Expo Milano 2015 will feature a ‘Green” Technology,’ which sets it apart from other traditional exhibition spaces. The amazing thing about this technology is – it has a built-in dual functionality. It will protect the pavilion from the sun, creating shelter on outside spaces. Visitors will have access to the flat roof of the pavilion, which rises towards to the main entrance gradually. A 30-meter long canopy will cover the main access to the pavilion, making the pavilion much more intriguing for the visitors.
On the main ground, all visitors would be able to enjoy special events and activities, spanning for around six months of the Universal Exposition.

The entire team ensured the design was a simple one yet it was an extraordinary architectural structure, which includes façade made from durable and eco materials. All in all, their significant task was to develop an architectural structure, which bears an essence of Russia wholeheartedly.
