The winning YAP project at Maxxi and Milano 2015

Famous architects and young new studios alike address the theme of temporary structures and the pavilions under construction for the upcoming World’s Fair, Expo Milano 2015.
The essential feature of this type of construction is the fact that it can be taken apart and put back together in a different location. It is therefore essential that it be built out of materials with a low environmental impact which can be reused and permit the site to be restored to its former condition. These features were required of the winner of the YAP 2015 competition: Great Land by Studio Corte, to be built in the space outside the museum designed by Zaha Hadid to host summer events at Maxxi.
The nomad hotel designed by Dus Architects is an example of a temporary structure made of unusual materials, as is the installation created by Diller Scofidio + Renfro for the thirtieth anniversary of Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris. And once a year we write about the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, the famous London installation designed by a different architectural studio every year, created by Selgas Cano Architecture in 2015. Finally, we provide plenty of coverage of Expo 2015, presenting a selection of the pavilions under construction every week: Azerbaijan, Qatar, MexicoSlovenia, Austria and Angola, to mention only the pavilions covered so far.
