UAE Expo 2020 Pavilion
Updated: 28th December, 2022

UAE Expo 2020 Pavilion

A grand faceted sphere houses an auditorium where the audience are raised from one floor to another while watching audio-visual shows.
UAE Expo 2020 Pavilion
UAE Expo 2020 Pavilion is an area located within Opportunity District, Expo City Dubai, Dubai South, Dubai.
The project was completed by October 2021.
The architect
The architectural consultant was Santiago Calatrava.

The UAE Pavilion at EXPO 2020 was designed by Santiago Calatrava as a symbolic interpretation of the flow of movement.

Covering an area of 15,000 square metres the 27.8 metre high building seeks to draw visitors towards a shaded arcade around the perimeter wall, underneath the pavilion’s roof which is composed of 28 ‘wings’ that can be opened within three minutes.

Photovoltaic panels integrated into the roof structure provide the power for the opening and closing of the wings. When the wings are open the panels are able to harvest solar energy which is returned to the main power grid. When they are closed they protect the panels from rain and sandstorms.

Inside the pavilion a grand faceted sphere houses an auditorium whose seating can be raised to lift the audience from one floor to another while experiencing audio-visual shows. The auditorium serves as both a centrepiece and a functional space that can accommodate 200 people.
