JUDGES’S REPORT            

This proposal creates an impressive landmark with a strong link to the Milan Expo theme. A poetic concept that interprets different symbols as architectural components with a building skin formed by movable matter resulting in transformable appearance both inside and outside. It also presented an impressive visualization with high quality drawings combined with a  fluid and dynamic interior space.

The authors with the Silo design have created a highly visible, inviting and informative point at the intersection of the two main axes (Cardo and Decumano) with an interesting reference using the pavilion’s “hourglass” form to encourage reflection and awareness of the primany importance of conserving resources.

2nd Winner:

2nd Winner 117554-MILAN World Expo Pavilion

2nd Prize was awared to:

  • Giuseppe Cericola
  • Vincenzo Marinelli
  • Country: Italy
  • Team Type: Architect


A proposal that is complete and well detailed with original concept and aesthetic. It is a project that creates a very interesting and intelligent transformable structure offering various configurations of beautiful shapes. Sustainability is ensured by the possibility of different uses for future installations. The layout is convenient with nicely light interior space that includes original furniture.

The pavilion fits harmoniously into the expo scheme based on the shape, ephemeral character and lightness with the off-site construction system responding directly to the temporary nature of the Expo. This is a concept of “simple” volume and intelligently presented.

3rd Winner:

3rd Winner 115734-MILAN World Expo Pavilion

3rd Prize was awared to:

  • Yi Zhang
  • Ping Liu
  • Country: Australia
  • Team Type: Student


The project shows a high level of analysis on the topic of exhibition spaces and great contemporary events with a solid attempt to reinvent the concept of information pavilion. Essential services (information, connection, relationship links) are scattered along the main axes of the entire Expo and not centralised at a sigle point in responds to the current need to distribute information and services on a small scale.

A humble but strong concept and approach to the Expo pavilion that steps back from monumental in favour of micro-scale to avoid overwhelming the others buildings within the Expo.
