Czech Pavilion at Expo 2015

Unanimous decision by the judges awarded first place to KOMA for the design of the Czech Pavilion at the 2015 Expo to be held in Milan.

KOMA is specialized in modular construction for a wide vary of functions, with practical prefabricated elements, low budget for construction and reuse at the base of all their designs.

For the 2015 Exhibition, Brno based architecture firm Chybik + Kristof Associated Architects conceived the modular design for KOMA that stands up to international competition standards. 
Judges preferred the design to others presented due to the innovation in construction and ease to transport and dismantle the Pavilion after the 2015 event. Other aspects were also taken into account, like the free flowing nature from indoor to outdoor facilitating movement of the visitors around the space and the integration of water and  landscape into the Czech Pavilion. The three floor, all-white, temporary pavilion will have a swimming pool at the entrance and roof garden on the top floor of the structure.

Another essential aspect in the judges decision was the easy reallocation of the prefabricated structure after the 2015 event  ”the contractor took into account that after the EXPO, the pavilion will be dismantled and brought back to the Czech Republic, and would like to offer it for use as a preschool.” says commissioner general of the Czech Pavilion, Jiří František Potužník, to National Czech Television recently.

Nitra based KOMA, company specialized in modular construction has branches in Prague and Brno. They manufacture prefabricated, multi storey, energy efficient and fire resistant dry constructions for use as offices, schools, houses, shops to name but a few options. With a yearly production of around 2 500 modules, of which 80% are exported, the company is a registered supplier to the UN, NATO and several other international organizations. 
Price tag on the Czech Pavilion is to be €2.2 million, around half that spend on the Czech Pavilion at Shanghai Expo in 2010.
