An Irish Landscape

The Ireland Pavilion, Milan Expo 2015

Event delivered the content interpretation, exhibition design and on-site installation for the award-winning Ireland Pavilion in Milan Expo 2015.

​Rich in natural resources and green pastures that are fertile and productive, Ireland is brought to life through its Pavilion which offers visitors a close-up of its magnificent landscapes, historical heritage, contemporary culture and legendary hospitality and food products.

The weather of Ireland is famously variable and its continuously changing canvas is an important ingredient in Ireland’s distinctive agricultural landscape. In the short time that visitors are in the Pavilion, they will experience a variety of weather conditions that offer a memorable escape from the heat of a Milan summer.

​A soundscape moving through the Pavilion’s linear space evokes the sound of distant thunder, the wind associated with a threatening storm, wild rain falling. With generations of family farms and fisheries, Ireland’s message to the world is clear: the land and sea belong not to us, but to future generations.
