The world fair’s sustainability theme has inspired the designers of many pavilions currently being built
In the vast Expo 2020 Dubai site, its skyline dominated by towering glass and steel structures, lies a message of sustainability.
When organisers were planning Terra – the Sustainability Pavilion, the brief was to build a large structure, open to the public, that generated its own electricity and cooling in the middle of the desert.
The result is a sustainable building that will become a science centre after Expo 2020 ends.
As scores of pavilions in Dubai South take shape before the event opens in October, the theme of sustainability has been carried through to many of the country’s structures.
Here The National takes a look at five of the greenest pavilions visitors will see.
