Expo 2020 United Arab Emirates National Pavilion
The pavilion eloquently symbolises Emirati culture and the United Arab Emirates' ambitious vision for the future
The United Arab Emirates National Pavilion for Expo 2020 in Dubai, symbolises the country’s history of falconry and its bold and daring spirit which has transformed a collection of small desert communities into a global hub for commerce and tourism.
As part of a multi-disciplinary team including Santiago Calatrava and WME, Pascall+Watson have created and coordinated the designs for the futuristic structure. The key feature of the scheme is a series of huge metal-clad roof forms which open on a single pivot to provide a direct connection with the outside air.
Sitting at the heart of the Expo’s exhibition area, the 15,000m² LEED Platinum building is one of the focal points of the event offering exhibition spaces, an auditorium, cafe areas and VIP lounges.
