Milan, Italy, Austrian Pavilion at EXPO 2015
Some 140 countries and organizations present their visions at the EXPO 2015 regarding the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life".
Designed by Klaus K. Loenhart et al. the Austrian Pavilion is dedicated to "air" and presents the vital resource by a 5600 sq ft large forest in the courtyard of the pavilion.
A lounge at the pavilion offers on one side a view over the forest. The wall on the opposite side was covered by KAPO with EXYD-M – it generates a fragmented mirror image of the treetops.
EXYD-M was also used for the cladding of water dispensers within the pavilion.
