“Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” is the theme for Expo 2015. The German pavilion clearly orients itself to this leitmotif – under the “Fields of Ideas” motto. Germany reveals itself as a vibrant, fertile “landscape” filled with ideas on future human nutrition.
The architecture and the exhibition are closely interlinked. The pavilion, in the form of a gently rising landscape, recalls Germany’s field and meadow landscapes. The stylised plant-like structures are a key design element as they grow upwards from the exhibition to the surface, where a canopy of leaves unfolds.
Visitors can discover the “Fields of Ideas” along two different routes. They can either stroll along the pavilion’s freely accessible upper level, which invites them to relax and enjoy. Or they can explore the exhibition inside the pavilion, which addresses such topics as the sources of nutrition, through to food production and consumption in the urban world.
