Traditionally, the participating countries express their presence also by means of architecture; the national pavilions embody the theme chosen by each country and act as a powerful means of content dissemination. At the same time, a temporary pavilion represents an interesting occasion for designers – often selected though architectural competitions – since the ephemeral nature of the buildings makes possible to adopt experimental building techniques, cutting edge formal proposals and innovative concepts, that are unlikely to be adopted for permanent buildings.
