Expo 2020 is about to start in a few days. Millions of people are expected to attend the event spread over almost 6 months. Emirates has just announced that the ‘Emirates Pavilion’ is ready and will open its doors on October 1, 2021, for the people coming for Expo 2020. The Emirates Pavilion is located in the Opportunity District, and within walking distance of the Al Wasl Dome. It will offer people an insight into the technology and science that will play a key role in the development of air travel in the coming 50 years. Inside the Emirates Pavilion are two floors of interactive multi-sensory installations.
Visitors Can Start Planning Visit to Emirates Pavilion from Today
“From today, visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai can plan their visit to the Emirates Pavilion and book their preferred date and time slots in advance,” Emirates said.
For the unaware, the Emirates Pavilion’s construction had started way back in March 2019 and was only finished this June in 2021. The airline followed a number of sustainability principles during the design and construction phases of the Emirates Pavilion. The overall structure is made using non-hazardous, regional, reusable and recyclable materials. Further, different design solutions have been made to reduce water and energy consumption.
“The Emirates Pavilion’s towering four-storey design and façade are modelled around an aircraft’s wings taking flight, with 24 aluminium cladded fins that curve around two sides of the building structure. The Emirates Pavilion’s exterior lighting includes an 800 metre LED system, which illuminates in vibrant colours at night. The interior’s bright, ultramodern design lets in ample natural light and serves as a backdrop for the immersive experiences, and can welcome 120 people an hour,” the airline said.
