The Italy Pavilion by Nemesi & Partners is a modern structure designed for the upcoming Expo Milano 2015. The pavilion is representative of an urban forest that is brought to life through its webbed and organic facade.

The building's exterior skin covers is enclosed with 900 unique panels that are crafted to form a woven branch pattern. The facade plays with positive and negative space and creates transparencies with solid and void elements.

"Connected by bridges, the encompassing meeting and conference spaces, restaurants, a VIP eatery and rooftop terrace complete the structure’s functional elements."

Nemesi & Partners' Italy Pavilion structure features a steel construction with photovoltaic glass panes and "a new type of concrete with photocatalytic properties will contribute to the city’s sustainable" design concept.
