Since the first participation in a Universal Exhibit, Mexico has always delivered an imposing structure that captures the imagination. The main theme of the Expo Milano is sustainability. Francisco Lopez Guerra Almada and Jorge Vallejo collaborated with biologist Juan Gussy to design the winning concept of the international competition based on the corn of Mexico. The structure covers 1,910 square meters of the pavilion space. The area for this is around a steam of water, which gives life to the gardens, and other ecological resources of Mexico.
