Michele De Lucchi, Agorà, Expo Milano 2015

Architect Michele De Lucchi designed Agorà, a temporary space constructed to present themes and plans for the next World’s Fair, Expo Milano 2015.

The installation was unveiled before the people of Milan during Bookcity November 22 through 24. Set up in the Armoury Courtyard of Sforzesco Castle, Agorà was used for the events “Assaggi di WE - Women for Expo” and “Giocacomemangi”, after which it will be dismantled to travel around Italy and the world.

The structure is made up of 12 identical wooden elements which may be set up in different ways to adapt the pavilion to host different types of event (conferences, screenings, exhibitions or performances). Its shape is inspired by the haystack, which Michele de Lucchi sees as "a common image symbolising positive attention to our planet and respectful use of resources”.
