EXPO 2017, AUSTRIAN PAVILLONWith brain, heart and human power!
Global challenges like „Future Energy", the EXPO's theme, cannot be solved on a national level. Human beings have to collaborate – just like in the Austrian pavillon, which is powered by humans: Visitors are encouraged to run, pull, jump, swing and push pedals in order to bring and keep the playful installation alive. More human action means more solutions and attraction. The exhibition can only reach its full potential when all visitors work together to power the exhibits. The playful setting and fun atmosphere touch visitors at an emotional level, rather than impressing them with hi-tech gadgets. Austria is presented as an imaginative, active and fun nation!
