Cantilevered almost 100 feet to the main avenue of Expo 2015 Milan, the canopy of the Russian Federation Pavilion dramatically invites visitors into the building's exhibition space. Its mirrored soffit reflects both pedestrians and the wood pathway leading to the rectilinear structure where Russia's contributions to global agriculture are displayed. Designed by Moscow-based architects SPEECH, the pavilion, which fits into a narrow site, is one of 96 at the Expo that address the theme of feeding the planet.
