The Austria Pavilion will be inserted into the available volume of 83 x 15 x 12 meters. The building unites country and city, nature and technology, landscape and building — it sets the stage for Austria’s presentation at the EXPO 2015, a stage defined by Austria’s specialties, beauty, and innovation in alternative ways of living and eating. The Austrian pavilion will be constructed largely of native spruce timber. Wood grows quickly and is thus a viably sustainable building material that also has a long history in Austrian building traditions. Parts of the pavilion are used for various green spaces. Austrian companies have already developed innovative and tested stabilization and irrigation systems for green façades. The suspended façade is not only a clear eye-catcher, it also generates energy. So-called Solar Ivy (in red and white, the national colors), hangs from a steel grid and produces electricity. The wind tulip, an Upper Austrian product, noiselessly produces clean electricity.
