Project Title
EXPOMILAN 2015/ Argentine Hall
“ARGENTINA TE ALIMENTA” (Argentine feeds you) A three levels experience. The Argentine Hall in ExpoMilan2015 offers the experience of sensory connections instead of the amount of information. The pavilion is a silo system that like machinery allows and provokes the experience: at the ground floor, the characteristics aromas and flavours of our culture open the way for the food experience. Then a staircase spirals around different performances and the musical and sound experience feeds the soul. In the end, inside the silos, an immersive spatial situation where it is possible to hear immigrant`s voices or feelings in surrounded by wheat and soybean plantations or flying along the Beagle Channel. And the architecture is the vehicle of that unforgettable experience.
