THE EAST AND THE WEST MEET IN THE BAHRAIN PAVILION
Restaura chose Magnetti Building as its partner of excellence to build the Pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Natural and eco-sustainable materials contributed to the architecture in accordance with a formal language inspired by the history of the Country, while preserving a character of its own. Starting from eastern architectural and iconographic tradition, the design winds its way through the 1,500 m2 surface with simple straight and curved lights spaced out, in an interplay of references that are never overtly explicit, yet intuitively linked to the East in order to achieve a contemporary reinterpretation of the present. The Pavilion consists of environments aimed at popularising the agri-food tradition of the Kingdom.
