Astana (Kazakhstan), 10th June – 10th September 2017
Simmetrico was chosen by His Serene Highness, Prince Albert II of Monaco, as the winner of the international tender for the design, development and construction of the Monaco Pavilion at Astana Expo 2017.
The concept that lies at the basis of the project conception is the city that is reflected in the sea and reveals the complex relationship between man and the environment, where the limit can be transformed into an opportunity of conscious growth. The Pavilion told the story of the commitment made by the Principality of Monaco towards sustainable progress, in which the new paradigms of urban development are integrated with environmental protection.
The scenography highlights the idea of reflection: a large kinetic installation in the middle of the Pavilion consisting of mirrored elements that welcomes and reflects a projection that tells the story of dialogue between the Principality of Monaco and the sea.
Integration between shapes, design and contents is the sole expression of the values of sustainability and those of progress, reminding visitors of the awareness of this relationship.
