14:50Germany begins construction of its pavilion #luxo
Construction work began earlier today on the German Pavilion for Expo Milano 2015. This means that the Federal Republic of Germany is the first participant country to commence construction work on the EXPO grounds.
Dietmar Schmitz, Commissioner General of the German Pavilion and Head of the Division for Trade Fair Policy and EXPO Participation at the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), performed the symbolic ground-breaking ceremony together with Giuseppe Sala, General Commissioner of EXPO Milano 2015. Schmitz: “It is a great pleasure for me to make the first cut of the spade on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. As of today, the German Pavilion will take shape more and more every day.”
In Milan, Germany will be represented by one of the largest buildings. Sala: “We have no doubt that the German Pavilion will once again deliver an excellent performance in 2015. The concept is firmly rooted in the Expo theme of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” and offers a whole new experience that I am sure will appeal greatly to visitors.” Now that construction work on the pavilion has commenced, the topping-out ceremony has been scheduled for the coming autumn.
The Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy has commissioned Messe Frankfurt with the task of organising and running the German Pavilion. The company has extensive international experience and has its own subsidiary in Milan. The German Pavilion will be built by a consortium of companies consisting of Milla & Partner (Stuttgart), Schmidhuber (Munich) and Nüssli Deutschland (Roth, near Nuremburg). Within the consortium, Milla & Partner will be responsible for the overall concept and for exhibition and media design, Schmidhuber for architecture and general planning, and Nüssli for implementation and project management.
To date, Expo 2015 S.p.A. has received applications from a total of 142 participants who will be showcasing their future concepts on the theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” in Milan between 1 May and 31 October 2015.
