Turkey, the homeland of agriculture, has had quite a peculiar place in farming and nutrition thanks to the amalgamation of its geography, climate, nature and its culture identified with the charity of its people for centuries. Our theme, centered around the teachings and experiences of a 12.000-year-long history, is embodied through the fruit of pomegranate. As one of the richness of Turkey in agriculture, “Nar”, Turkish for pomegranate, inherently represents diversity within unity. “Nar” is both singular and plural, and the symbol of fertility and abundance in the world. It has come to be associated with positive attributes in many cultures and religions. “Nar” encompasses each and every one of our values and, through its very nature, is ready to share with the rest of the world.
Our theme “DIGGING INTO HISTORY FOR FUTURE FOOD”, inspired by the opulent and abundant attributions of “Nar”, is inlaid and displayed in the entire architectural and contextual design and formation of the Turkish Pavilion.
Located on a construction site of about 1 million-square-meter, the Expo Site is at the North-West of Milan.
The Turkish Pavilion is on the Lot 41, East side of the Expo Site.
Turkish Pavilion consists of 3 main divisions of indoor, semi-outdoor and outdoor venues on a total area of 4.170-square-meter, which includes 7 semi-outdoor distinct chambers.
Of these chambers, 5 are designed for theme-related events and the remaining two as a Turkish restaurant and a boutique of souvenirs.
The main entrance of the Pavilion is on the outdoor area, where a perforated roof is crowned with a modern interpretation of the 'Seljuki Star' made of steel. In the whole architectural design, our values are reflected through fountains, stones, world-famous Turkish traditional house, Turkish glasswork 'Çeşm-i Bülbül' and special patterns belonging to the Turkish culture.
