Expo 2015's Tree Of Life

Chairman of Balich Worldwide Shows and artistic director of the Italy pavilion at Expo 2015, Marco Balich devised the concept of Expo 2015’s Tree of Life, a 37m-tall steel and wood structure with a circumference of 45m. Gio Forma turned it into a practical design, and it was constructed by the Orgoglio Brescia consortium for the Italian city’s Universal Exhibition (May 1 to October 31). More than 140 participating countries and 20 million visitors are expected at the 1.1 million square meter exhibition area in Milan.
