With the theme ‘back to the future’, France takes you here to the city of tomorrow: back in time and at the same time to the future. The ambition is to create the city of tomorrow by combining old knowledge and solutions with new innovations, in harmony with nature.

Floriade Expo 2022 is officially closed

Floriade Expo 2022 was open from 14 April to 9 October. The Expo has since closed; the Floriade site is now being further developed into the new green city district Hortus.

Green, inclusive and scalable

This pavilion was created by using traditional solutions and modern, sustainable innovations. All this has been brought together to create a pavilion that fits perfectly into the city of tomorrow: green, inclusive and scalable. The pavilion of France rests on three pillars: Bio-inspiration, Bio-economy and the Circular Economy. It is constructed from wood of French origin, completely dismountable and reusable and self-sufficient thanks to, among other things, solar panels.


Smart innovations and simple solutions are combined. The pavilion is self-sufficient in energy thanks to an innovative solar roof system. Rainwater is also collected for the garden.
