Expo Milano 2015 – Holy See Pavilion
The white compact volume represents the essentiality of a boulder, whose surfaces act as the supports of the message that connects the Catholic Church to the central theme of EXPO:
“Not by bread alone does man live”. The scriptures becomes poetry, allusive words that fall down like “manna” from heaven.
Inside the pavilion, two half vaults (romanic and gothic) assume the value of architectural fragments that remind the specific spaces of Christianity: sensors of natural light at the top, they converge at the bottom onto the central axis of a long wooden table, fulcrum of the exhibition, hub and symbol of hospitality, synthesis between individual and community experience.
