The Forest – Sustainability in practice in the Swedish pavilion.

The Swedish pavilion the Forest, located in the sustainability district, has a three-step effect in durability. By using alternative materials instead of concrete and steel, we expect to save 1,000 tons of carbon dioxide. Furthermore, the Forest combines the two ways to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere: by reducing emissions, or by extracting an additional 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it – reducing ‘carbon sources’ and increasing ‘carbon sinks’.

The Forest by Stockholm-based Alessandro Ripellino Architects, Studio Adrien Gardère and Luigi Pardo Architetti.


During their free stroll in the Forest, the visitors are offered a series of diversified and unexpected experiences in a fully connected and interactive environment. The Swedish Pavilion will focus on new ways to build The Smart Society, including topics such as tech, life science, next-generation transport, Industry 4.0, new materials, smart cities, and circular bio-based economies.
