Bamboo pavilion as an example of modern architecture at World Expo 2015
Vo Trong Nghia was chosen to design the Vietnam Pavilion at World Expo 2015 in Milan. The national plant of Vietnam was taken as a model. It’s about the lotus.
The project includes lotus lake with a narrow pool.
You can also see a series of bamboo structures that have been covered by trees.
Sustainable building materials – the Vietnamese pavilion made of bamboo
Inspired by local plants, the pavilion has a global message. First, there is a preference for flawless beauty. The lotus comes from the water but shows up on the surface. Thus it proves that difficulties can be turned into advantages.
Lotus is also fundamental to Vietnamese cuisine. All parts of the plant are used.
Sustainable architecture is trendy
The exhibition has two floors and will be located in the center of the pavilion. It is surrounded by water on all sides and encloses 25 tree bus structures of various sizes. The swimming pool around the pavilion was designed to cool the air. There the stepping stones are also made in the shape of a lotus.
After the exhibition is over, this construction will be dismantled and used again for other projects.
