Pavilion informations: Finland – Sharing Pure Energy The exhibition design of the Finnish Pavilion 2017 shares a story about Finland, energy and its future. The Pavilion represents the values of Finnish society which lay the foundation for energy-related questions. The Pavilion consists of four individual freestanding buildings: Pure Energy, Smart City, Clean Water and Excellent Education. • In the Pure Energy and Smart City buildings, the visitors get acquainted with today’s Finnish green energy, innovations, businesses and services for the benefit of the whole society. • In the Clean Water -building the audience will learn about the water circle - how fresh, drinkable tap water in Finnish cities is not only a technological achievement but requires also legislative and educational solutions. • In the Excellent Education -building the visitors discover that for sustainable society, education is crucial - and for the Finnish education system in turn, innovations in teaching methodology and school design are important. The exhibition builds a narrative of Finland’s holistic approach towards energy challenges in modern world. It oscillates between digital and natural, representing Finlands close relation to nature and solution-based mindset of tackling environmental challenges with clean technology. The design begins with a video installation of Finnish energy leaders discussing the challenges around energy and ends with interviews of children sharing their dreams and visions for the future. Finally, the Finnish pavilion is not only telling a story of sustainability, but it is constructed sustainable. The buildings are built from wood: an ancient, natural construction material, which is at the same time high tech. Finland grows more wood than it uses, making wood products the most sustainable form of construction today. The Finnish Pavilion 2017, combined with digital design and manufacturing techniques, is exploring new experiences in wood construction.
