China Pavilion design for Milan Expo debuts


BEIJING, Feb. 27 — The design of the China Pavilion for the Milan Expo 2015 was publicized on Thursday.
The architecture, shaped in the form of “rippling wheat,” will stretch for 4,590 square meters and the core exhibition concepts will be “heaven, the earth, humanity and harmony,” said Wang Jinzhen, general representative of the China Pavilion.
An exhibition area with themed “heaven” will show the Chinese people’s respect for nature, Wang said, while another themed “ground” will display harvest scenes and the diversity of rivers and mountains across the country.
The Milan Expo will last from May 1 to Oct. 31, 2015.
Its theme is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” aimed at raising awareness regarding the hunger challenge and the impact of waste.
Some 142 participants had confirmed their presence by Feb. 20, according to the expo’s website.[db:内容2]
