The concept is based on the temporarily of the pavilion and on the theme of the World Exhibition EXPO 2015 „Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life“. see project
The motto of the pavilion is water. The pavilion presents the latest progress in nanotechnology for water purification as well as traditional Czech Republic‘s relation to water (e.g. spa, etc.) in the form of the swimming pool, which is part of the public space of the pavilion.
The pavilion is a modular structure. The important aspect of modularity is the ability to dismantling the building after the show, move it back to the Czech Republic and reuse modules of the pavilion. Contemporary architecture of the pavilion refers to the simplicity of the national style – modernism.
A swimming pool, a small amphitheater and a restaurant can be found at the bottom part of the pavilion. On the first floor there are exhibition spaces around a central atrium and another restaurant, these are followed by an open green roof that provides visitors with a view of the whole area of the exhibition.
It is up to the visitor, if he decides to rest in one of three restaurants in the pavilion or relax in the swimming pool which is known as „urban pool“ or „Czech Re: Public Pool“. The necessary equipment for the bath gets the visitor free as promotional material.
Instead of traditional printed materials that often end up in the trash, the visitor gets flip-flops, a bathing suit and a towel which should have the information about the exhibition and about the Czech Republic printed on them. The visitor then can promote the pavilion elsewhere in original way.
Promotional items will be made of smart materials with nanotechnology in which the Czech Republic is a world leader. Source by Chybik + Kristof Associated Architects.
