A city representing human civilization is dependent on natural resources, it is a place of life that is directly related to the surrounding landscape. In the Czech pavilion, we remind this related and inevitable duality. We walk on a downy landscape, representing the imaginary base of civilization, above which hovers an urban structure that grows out of the landscape and cannot exist without it. The design of the pavilion and the exposition is based on urban city structures, which are in a certain abbreviation and exaggeration depicted on the facades, in front of the pavilion and within the exposition.Read more
The space in front of the pavilion is accentuated by the entrance skulpture - a ribbon, which in addition to defining the space for queueing visitors also serves as a partial protection against the weather conditions. The ribbon inner is complemented by screens providing initial information about the exhibition. The pavilion won a silver Award for Creativity in the category of rentable pavilions.
