Austria - Expo Aichi 2005

Austria presented itself in Japan with a 650m² exhibition pavilion with the main theme "A sculpture of the senses" and the secondary theme "The art of living".

Three concrete aspects of life and areas of excellence were presented, where Austria is among the best in the world:
- Music as an art form of living, ranging from the music of Mozart, the sound of the forests to the sound of high-tech engines.
- Wood as a natural material, which is associated in Austria with extraordinary architecture as well as with technology.
- The art of healthy living as a sign of high quality of life in Austria in the global comparison.

These three themes provided the framework for the concept and could be clearly recognised in the design of the EXPO pavilion. The content was transformed in an innovative, futuristic way with the aim of representing the Republic of Austria.
