The pavilion also reinforces Germany’s agricultural landscape as something that is strong and still modern in today’s sector. As the slop to the building gently rises, that creates a seamless transition from the exterior to the interior, mimicking the way the building transforms landscape into architecture.

The landscape section is visible with the use of plant growth. Within the space a large protective canopy is used as a connecting element from the internal to the external spaces. In keeping with the EXPO’s theme the shape of the building is quite fluid in form, using nature for the source of inspiration. From this level, users can also appreciate the pleasurable vistas framed by the structure, creating a relaxed and calmed mood.

The German Piazza, where visitors can socialize, also locates a restaurant that accommodates 350 guests. The restaurant also extends to an external seating area, creating a link between the internal and external activity.
