KriskaDECOR clads the façade of the Ecuador Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015
The aim of the design was to stand out the Pavilion among those around it thanks to its façade, creating an emotional connection with traditional and unique elements of the country. The use of KriskaDECOR aluminium curtains as an optimal support for the reproduction of the designs, offers the ideal colour display and brightness for that purpose, as well as the subtle movement that transmits the cozy feeling of the fabrics. The sunlight and the lighting planned to the smallest details enhance the completely successful final effect.
The Northern and Southern faces measure 25.4 meters in width and, the Eastern and Western, 15 meters each. This huge metallic structure is possible due to the lightness of the material. The pavilion, a building of 1.200 m², has three levels where the visitor can make a representative route of its four big regions: Amazon, Andes, Galapagos coast and islands. It is an interactive space with amazing projections and sensory effects.
The range of yellow, red, lilac, blue and green colours used, represents the colourful regions of the country, its population, landscape, craftwork, ethnic groups, cuisine and cultural expressions, which are also summarized in its logo and its motto “Ecuador Ama La Vida” (Ecuador loves life).
