Interior (public and private)

Pavilion of Latvia in Astana EXPO 2017 Latvia’s participation in Astana EXPO 2017 convincingly achieved its goal of attracting visitors and conveying a message of the values and opportunities of today's Latvia. Synergy of architecture, art and technology has been the key to success and recognition of more than 260,000 visitors. The environment created in the pavilion for variable expositions, using light and projections on abstract and functional environmental objects, provided opportunities for personal engagement. In addition, conference rooms were created.
