The Mexican Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 was designed by architect Francisco López Guerra Almada in the shape of a cob of corn: a key ingredient in Mexican cuisine.

The Mexican Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 looks like a cob of corn: a key ingredient in many Mexican dishes. The project, winner of an international design competition, was designed by Mexican architect Francisco López Guerra Almada with Jorge Vallejo supported by the consulting services of biologist Juan Guzzy.
The pavilion has an indoor surface area of 1910 sqm and is located near the intersection of the Decumanus and the Cardo near the Italian Pavilion and the Future Food District designed by Carlo Ratti.

The pavilion’s outer structure resembles a corn cob, consistently with the theme of Mexico’s participation in Expo, “Mexico, the Seed for the New World: Food, Diversity and Heritage". Traditional Mexican products are exhibited in the pavilion along a spiral-shaped ramp flanked by a stream of water, leading up to the rooftop terrace, where there is a restaurant with an urban garden.

On June 11 2015, SpazioFMGperl'Architettura celebrates Expo Milano 2015 with the presentation of HACER CIUDAD México 2015, an exhibition focusing on Mexican architecture organised in partnership with the Academia Nacional de Arquitectura Capítulo Monterrey with the participation of Versitalia, Archdaily and Floornature.
