In the first of a five-part series of episodes on the upcoming World’s Fair, Expo Milano 2015, Mitchell Davis (Executive Vice President of the James Beard Foundation and Chief Creative Officer of the USA Pavilion) sits down with USA Pavilion architect James Biber of Biber Architects to discuss architecture in past World’s Fairs, the challenges of designing a structure for a World’s Fair, and the ways content and form have influenced the creation of the American Food 2.0 USA Pavilion.


The USA Pavilion is a one-of-kind-building containing many elements, including a harvestable vertical farm, repurposed wood from Coney Island, installations and exhibits, and a rooftop terrace and café.
