GRÜNMANIA

GRÜNMANIA decorates the front of the pavilion, transcoding the GERMANIA letter characters. These small “shifts” bring about a transformation and inversion of meaning and open up a wide range of ideas: the pavilion is no longer just Germany’s shop window, but a container in which the global challenges can be tackled together.

In the anagram, the letters U N are mingling, inverting meanings: Germany acts in the global context as a player committed to sustainability. This is the statement. In a time when important global players are taking back their commitment to sustainability, Germany has a particular responsibility and role to play.
