Statement of the Jury


In the World Expo Pavilion, Luxembourg presents itself as a small but open minded and most of all sustainably conscious country. The textile ribbon is a scenography canvas which creates a continuous flow of images. The jury particularly likes the idea of merging the fabric membrane’s property as canvas and building wrap. Using lightweight membranes as an envelope for a temporary building is a sustainable way of reducing the consumption of resources. Along with the use of recycled steel for the subconstruction, the architects from Metaform designed a showpiece of sustainable lightweight architecture.
