The Israeli indoor pavilion: ‘The Israeli Touch’
The high-tech indoor pavilion at Floriade shows Israel in an innovative and interactive way. It will exhibit the way "The Israeli Touch" helps to improve the world, each day anew. The different areas of interest within the pavilion will display the Israeli initiatives, inventiveness, involvement and achievements in agriculture. Israel's ability to touch, create, change and surprise with new technologies and products, has a lasting effect on the quality of life of millions around the world. You are invited to create your own fruit of vegetable with an Ipad! For each design 100 seeds are donated to the developing world to alleviate poverty and hunger.
The Israeli outdoor pavilion: ‘Hidden Garden’
The outdoor ‘Hidden Garden’ is a combination of history, nature and new technology. It tells the Old Testament story of the seven species: the seven species of grains and fruit as most important produce for Israel. It contains six different rocks with an historical meaning, which are also exiting seating objects on which you are invited to take place.
