Foster + Partners design UAE pavilion for 2015 Milan Expo
Architectural practice Foster + Partners have unveiled designs for the United Arab Emirates pavilion for the 2015 Milan Expo. The proposal applies vernacular planning principles used in traditional desert cities with self-shaded pedestrian streets made from 12-metre-high walls occupying the 140-metre-site in a series of parallel waves that also evoke sand dunes. In addition, the pavilion responds to the 2015 Milan Expo’s theme of ‘feeding the planet’ by featuring a variety of dining options around the theme of modern Emirati food.
