The Spanish pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will be made up of various multi-purpose spaces that visitors can use to explore, sit, read, congregate or even rest.
They will function like small urban squares with catering services and shops, where people can spend time and enjoy the amenities, according to a statement issued on Wednesday.
It added that the exhibition area is designed to be a basement space which will make use of the thermal and acoustic insulation that being underground provides.
Both the open public spaces and the exhibition area will be connected via a large space where waiting will become part of the entertainment.
The Spanish Pavilion will help to raise awareness about, and encourage, greater efficiency, energy saving and resource management. It will not simply be an efficient building, it will be constructed with sustainable materials including wood, iron and fabric that can be reused, while the pavilion’s conical shape will allow for increased airflow to keep it cool.
Located in Expo 2020’s Sustainability District, the pavilion aims to attract around 2.5 million visitors during the six months of the Expo.
Expo 2020 expects to attract 25 million visits between October 20 2020 and April 10 2021, and 70 percent of its visitors are projected to come from outside the UAE.
