Competition project for the Austrian pavilion at the EXPO 2017 in Astana/Kazakhstan

Interactive, muscle-driven stations are installed in an expansive, two-storey structure. The visitors are both participants and observers; their muscular energy is used to bring the pavilion to life. They are encouraged to be both sensitive and sensible: surprising poetical, funny or sonorous machines can be operated by the visitors, who then receive typical Austrian energy foods such as a Mozartkugel or Mannerschnitte as a reward for their efforts. This is the Austrian pavilion’s interpretation of the Expo’s general theme of “Future Energy” – with an homage to the human yardstick.
