World Expos are the perfect excuse to explore new ideas and ways to approach architecture. Instead of presenting the vast diversity and richness of Mexican cuisine as the competition brief established, we decided on focusing on a national treasure that today forms part of the cultural legacy of many countries in the world: the Mexican Chili. The chili originated in Mexico and in the 16th century disseminated all over the world when the spanish discovered America. Our pavilion is an opportunity to explore the 145 types of Mexican chili in their natural state through a green roof that becomes the main attraction of the exhibition.
