The pavilion exhibits several solutions that the country has put in place to increase its agricultural capacity, thus responding to the general theme of Expo 2015: “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. All this must be done while respecting the biodiversity that is a key resource for the planetary balance. Brazil, which has understood the importance of respecting nature, has been able to adapt to local conditions, climate, habitat and culture of his country that have strongly influenced its agricultural production and have allowed it to become a global agricultural power.

The Brazilian pavilion is a mix of innovation and sustainable development for agricultural production.

Throughout the pavilion there are giant suspended nets that serve as a hammock for visitors: an invitation to relaxation and contemplation.
The pavilion will also be animated by video installations, concerts and performances.
The concept of the pavilion is based on three pillars:
a technological approach: a presentation of the technological capacity of the country that shows its reliability and innovation,
a cultural approach: the cultural diversity and the country’s food with its typicality
a social approach: food democracy is one of the purposes of the country through a healthy and adequate diet.
The design
