The theme of the US pavilion is "American Food 2.0: United to Feed the Planet".
Milano Expo 2015 allows the U.S. pavilion to showcase the United States as an innovator not only in the food sector, but also in many aspects of culture, science and business.
Feeding ourselves requires a huge infrastructure, advanced technologies, and dynamic systems that touch just about every aspect of the world we live in.
Each step from farm to table reflects a set of values and connections that impact our identities and shape our future.

Using interactive exhibits and state-of-the-art digital media, the US pavilion presents American industry, products, and entrepreneurship in the contexts of sustainability, nutrition and health, technology and innovation.
The U.S. pavilion builds on historical ties between the United States and Europe and promotes collaboration with the international community to address food systems challenges.

The US pavilion is a building designed by architect James Biber of Biber Architects of New York with an interior area of 3900 m2.
The building is a multi-level experience that includes a vertical farm on one of its parrots.
The architecture of the pavilion is inspired by agricultural buildings.

There is a constant dialogue between nature and science in the American pavilion, which are not opposing concepts but part of a cooperative system.
America's food history is rich and innovative - much more so than most people think and the aim is for visitors to understand and appreciate the complex and sophisticated way in which American history is made.

The American pavilion has many features that appeal to a wide range of visitors, including:

The world's largest vertical farm
Original wood used from the Coney Island boardwalk
Facilities, events and exhibits
Rooftop terrace and cafe with stunning views of the Expo Milano gardens
Meeting room and VIP room
Retail space
Oak grove, the national tree of the United States
