1) Presention of the Belgian pavilion

Presentation

The theme of the Belgian pavilion is « Our food, our world – Producing responsibly and consume with intelligence »: the balance between man and nature in food production and consumption.

The Belgian pavilion combines three themes: the Belgian identity, the technological innovation and a response to the theme of the World Exhibition (feeding the planet, energy for life). The Belgian pavilion has been built according to the principles of sustainability with regard to water, energy and natural materials.

Nontheless this pavilion is also at the forefront: the latest generation of photovoltaic panels will be featured in this exhibition.

The design

The pavilion occupies a space of 2717 square meters and it has been built by Patrick Genard & Asociados, an architectural firm, in collaboration with the architect Marc Belderbos and Besix-Vanhout, entrepreneur.

Its goals

Agricultural production has shaped the landscape of the planet. Belgium wants to show visitors technologies, innovations and the best practices that enable the country to achieve agricultural production in a responsible manner and preserving the environment.

The different spaces

The pavilion consists of several areas:

    • Multifunctional spaces, such as a large LED screen, a kiosk of French fries and one of waffles, will attract visitors from the Decumanus.

2) Inspiration

The different volumes are inspired by Belgian agricultural architecture. The geodesic dome greenhouses mimics real Laeken and the farm is in the traditional form of Belgian farms.

3) Belgium and feeding in numbers

      • 73% of Belgians say they eat healthily
      • The Belgian diet represents 1/4 of the ecological footprint of the country.
      • In Wallonia, 5 to 20kg of food are thrown on average for every citizen in a year.
