Au gré de l’eau. Le pays des trois lacs. The planning and implementation of the 2002 Swiss national Expo - The story of the 2002 Swiss national Expo is a good example of the not always linear process by which ‘great events’ are conceived of and developed. Geninasca, Merlini and Jeannot’s concept in 1994 was critical of the usual methods of planning expo events as a concentration within a ‘boundary’. Theirs was an approach which focused on the enhancement and change in the significance of an environment with a special landscape, using mobile architectures and ephemeral arrangements.
