Milan Expo 2015

I had the chance to see the six months expo. A celebration of architecture, culture, food and people. Under the theme of “Feeding the Planet, the Energy of Life”, the expo exhibits 145 countries’ culture in self built pavilions and grouped pavilions. Full list of participating countries are here. ArchDaily did a roundup about the top 5 ones, here.

Top 5 pavilions in my opinion are:

1. UAE

mexpo17

2. Brazil

mexpo10

3. Vietnam

mexpo12

4. United Kingdom

mexpo19 mexpo21

5. Ecuador

mexpo26

0 design framework copy

9 May 2012.

there you go, another final decisions.. wish the design can still be improved here and there, but that won’t happen, will it? i have selected some of my favourite images from my portfolio booklet, although bits and bobs are not perfect.

i would like to thank my tutor Chantelle Niblock for the tireless support, all contributors from the very beginning ( Nicole Porter, Owen South, Martin Knight, Ho Yin, Darren Robinson, John Chilton and Sean Lu) and my studio peer group.
