We've already seen what the Opportunity, Sustainability and Mobility Pavilions will look like, and now we have a good look at the Dubai Expo 2020's UAE Pavilion. With construction starting this month and expected to end in the latter part of 2019, it was modeled on the wings of a falcon, the United Arab Emirates' national bird. The architect, Santiago Calatrava, is also known for designing New York's World Trade Center Transportation Hub to resemble the wings of a dove, and the upcoming The Tower at Dubai Creek.
Between when the Expo opens October 2020, and when it closes April 10 2021, millions of people from around the globe are expected to visit (70 percent of which are from outside the UAE.
More than 30,000 volunteers from a wide range of ages, nationalities and cultures and backgrounds will work at the 4.38sq km site, located within the Dubai South District, adjacent to Al Maktoum International Airport.
We can't wait to see it all come to life!
