Opportunity Pavilion Key Information
Location type
Expo 2020 pavilion
Under development

The Opportunity pavilion was designed by Australian practice, Cox Architecture, and features a rope-and-light theme throughout, with intertwined ropes reflecting the coming together of people to contribute to human progress, giving them a sense of fulfilment and encouraging further action.
Cox Architecture principal director Steve Woodland described the pavilion as a ‘welcoming space that draws people together and sets them on a fun and engaging journey that progressively immerses them as active participants in a mind-awakening experience’.
The fully recyclable new proposal is built from 2,500 tonnes of stone, and features a spiral-shaped canopy made from around 111km of woven rope.
The structure also houses Small Steps, Big Leaps, the Expo’s global best practice programme, which calls for every World Expo to ‘showcase successful and impactful solutions’ to the world’s biggest challenges.
