UAE pavilion for Expo 2020 is revealed
This is how the UAE’s pavilion will look at Expo 2020 Dubai. The National Media Council (NMC) has selected architect Santiago Calatrava’s falcon in flight-inspired design. Located facing the Al Wasl Plaza, which lies at the centre of the 200-hectare exhibition zone, the UAE Pavilion is expected to cover up to 15,000 square metres and will include exhibition areas, an auditorium, food and beverage outlets and VIP lounges. Calatrava’s proposal was selected following a sevenmonth design competition managed by Abu Dhabi renewable energy company Masdar. The contest saw nine architectural firms submit 11 concepts.
