Thought as a covered market, French Pavilion represents a truly piece of the Country. It has a very simple structure, which follows the principle of a green architecture. It is a temporary construction made by local wood and it can be disassembled and reused after the exposition.
It is inspired by the traditional French markets, which are part of the French culture of food, an homage to the famous Parisian Halles, a place of exchange but also of production where new visions on food and nutrition can find fertile ground. This is the idea.
“Feeding the Planet in another way”, this is the main theme… How can we nurture our Planet?
…you will be introduced into this special market, passing through a sort of botanical garden where you can find different kind of cultivation.
Enter and go inside this original market, learning about typical French products…the famous baguette, cheese..
…everything is covered by the latticed structure, vegetation grows organically throughout the latticed structure… who doesn’t want a market like this in its own city?
…Upstairs, a restaurant will attempt to serve vegetables grown on site using hydroponic processes and aromatic herbs planted on the terrace.
