Designed by Slovak architect, Karol Kállay, the pavilion embodies the energy and array of biodiversity offered
by the country. From the exterior, it is encased in several wooden slats but
has curved shapes carved out and filled with organic matter—one of which takes
on the form of a human face. Internally, the designers divided the space into
two sections to allude to both their resources and national character. The first
portion, dubbed the “Recharging Zone,” is a place for the public to relax and
literally recharge their personal cellphones, tablets, or laptop. The second is
a learning forum where visitors learn about the various aspects of Slovakia.
Project DescriptionFROM MILAN EXPO 2015:
Theme: "Slovakia. World into the Pocket"
The second represents the energy and diversity of Slovakia and is located within the Pavilion as an area where visitors can discover the idea of energy linking modernity and cultural traditions across six themes of Traditions, Innovation, Sports, Culture, Experiences, and Nutrition and made visible throughout the exposition by a symbolized heart logo. At the Pavilion’s restaurant, visitors can enjoy a selection of Slovak dishes and modern reinterpretations of traditional specialties, or call in at its shop, where they can find souvenirs and gifts of Slovakia, send a postcard from Slovakia, or buy a unique USB charger developed in Slovakia.
