Angola, through its participation in Expo Milano 2015, wants to communicate the variety of its food production emphasizing, in the exhibition, cultural traditions and technological innovation. The visit begins with an installation of a stylized African Baobab that show the central role of women in Angola’s society through real stories.
On the terrace are located, a garden with the cultivation of vegetables and fruits typical of the country and, on the very top of the building with access from the interior, a mini tropical greenhouse.
Angola participates in “Towards a Sustainable Expo” for the first category (sustainable architecture) and fourth (other sustainability initiatives).
The pavilion built mostly with steel beams and wood, was designed to be disassembled and then rebuilt in the capital Luanda where it will become an exhibition on participation of Angola to the various Universal Exposition. The main solutions adopted for the architectural sustainability are:
• use of technologies for energy saving;
• use of smart systems to manage the cooling and lighting control;
• shading devices to reduce the impact of direct solar radiation allowing natural lighting.
