” The architecture transports the audience to the Finnish atmosphere of powerful contrasts. The pavilion consists of five buildings and the space between them. There is a strong contrast beween the white interstitial space and the warm interiors, which is supported by the careful use of sound and light. Both the architecture and exhibition of the Finnish Pavilion in Astana World Expo are designed by the same author. Ateljé Sotamaa has worked to make the pavilion a total work of art where architecture and exhibition content are intricately intertwined. The aim of the holistic design method is to create a powerful, emotional experience, which sparks people’s curiosity. “
