The message of our entry – following Béla Bartók’s chorus Cantata Profana and the folk-tale of the nine enchanted stags it is based on – is the return to the well of utter purity. While we are looking for the future food and vital energy of the world and market our own natural resources, cultural heritage and research results, we cannot lose sight of the fact that mankind thirsts actually for an Origin point existing in the past of everybody which shows us the way in the future, as well. In our design proposal the Hungarian pavilion in Milan leads the visitors through an entrance building into the legendary forest of Béla Bartók’s Cantata Profana.
