Sustainability Pavilion | Expo 2020 Dubai
World Expo Dubai 2020
New Terracotta is proud to supply the Terra Sustainability Pavilion in World Expo Dubai 2020
The first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia will take place in Dubai. It starts in October 2020 and ends in April 2021, and for six months the event will celebrate culture and collaboration through innovative projects and exhibitions. A total of 192 countries will attend, with millions of visitors expected to descend on the UAE from around the world.
There are three main sub-themes to the event: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. These will take pride of place within three stunning UAE pavilions, but will also be found in other nations’ pavilions.
The Sustainability Pavilion, called Terra, will be quite an attraction on its own right. Designed by the renowned British firm Grimshaw Architects, the pavilion is a unique opportunity to deliver an aspirational message about the natural world, ecology and technology to a global audience.
“We are at a critical juncture in time, with an opportunity before us to create a healthy, lasting future for generations to come,” said Andrew Whalley, Deputy Chairman at Grimshaw. “The architecture and exhibitions of the Sustainability Pavilion will serve as an exciting reminder that ingenious innovation is already underway, and that further inspiration is all around us in the natural world.”
New Terracotta is delighted to have been commissioned to handmade 92.564 tiles for such a fantastic project.
