Key facts & Challenges

The USA Pavilion is characterised by a living green wall, conceived as an‘upturned  field’. The crops will exploit a hydroponic agriculture system, mounted on movable panels that can be easily rotated to follow the sun. The irrigation of crops is achieved by a system that collects and recycles rainwater, as an example of urban agriculture. To showcase environmental sustainability, super thin solar roof panels and photo-chrome glass has been installed. The USA Pavilion includes a recycled steel frame and composite wood floor, impressive video installations with interactive exhibition areas, a rooftop terrace, VIP space and retail area.
