The pavillion follows the theme "Fields of ideas" also in its exterior shape. “Idea Seedlings” are artificial trees featuring as leaves organic photovoltaic cells. This is a new technology for which the German pavillion was the first large project to use, according to ArchDaily.
The original LE:NOTRE Projects were co-funded by the European Union's Socrates and Lifelong Learning Programmes.
The LE:NOTRE Institute has been established by ECLAS as foundation under Netherlands Law.
