The first parts of the Hungarian pavilion that was set up at the Milan World Expo in 2015 have arrived in Karcag, in eastern Hungary, where the structure will be re-erected, the mayor of Karcag said on Friday.
The pavilion is currently being disassembled in Milan and its parts are expected to arrive in Karcag on around forty lorries over the months to come, László Dobos said. The first shipment included parts of the energy centre, he added.
The pavilion dubbed “The Garden of Life” will form part of a tourism and leisure centre to be established next to the local spa, he added.
A final date for the completion of the project has not been announced but Farm Minister Sándor Fazekas, an MP for Karcag and its vicinity, said last spring that construction is planned to begin next year.
The Milan expo website showed that the “The Garden of Life” was laid out over three floors, including symbolic elements related to organic architecture. The front and rear ends of the building had a circular form and resembled a giant shamanistic tambourine, while the part in the centre was inspired by Noah’s Ark, it added.
