Description from the designers:Our proposal for the competition for the Austrian expo pavilion for Milano 2015 is driven by a conceptual approach of highlighting the local cultural and craft diversity within Austrian regions, and how these expertise in conjunction with Austria’s diverse topography have produced a broad variety within the cultivation of agricultural crops and goods.  We understand the architectural proposal to this proposition as an ark, carrying a library of diverse Austrian goods, locally produced with a sustainable philosophy.

Description from the designers:The pavilion is organized as a 2 story building executed with a steel frame construction. The massing is articulated as a pair of elongated volumes, opening up in the front with a gesture of invitation, and developing into an internalized fold of the ground within the building granting visitors access to the main exhibition level at first floor, and leaving the ground floor with amenities and admin functions with an articulated folded ceiling along the main axis of circulation.
