Intesa Sanpaolo Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 | aMDL Michele De Lucchi

«There is a Hindu story about a master who says that to attain wisdom and happiness, we must be like stones and pebbles on a river bed, knowing that the water will always inevitably flow over them. The stone lets the river run softly or swiftly by, allowing the current to slip over its skin, to smooth its asperities and model its body. The water remains clean and transparent, never clouded, leaving the stone or pebble undisturbed to enjoy the alternating of day and night and the changing seasons.

The Intesa Sanpaolo pavilion is composed of three stones, all of them polished and rounded by water. They are attached to one another and from different positions they look like a single stone. Through the stones the water has hollowed out its course.»
