Expo 2020 is going to be a centralized location that will address the challenges faced by global communities, such as Climate change, economic growth, and environmental sustainability; through events, seminars, conferences, and present the latest innovative technologies.
The prime focus of the Dubai expo is going to be ‘Connecting Minds and Creating the Future.’ which is this year’s theme of the Dubai expo. The theme is further subdivided into Mobility, sustainability, and opportunity has been assigned to each country. Total 190+ countries are going to participate in the expo.
Each and every country have designed and constructed their own pavilion that concentrates on the theme allotted to them. In today’s blog, we will explore the concept of the pavilion and the relevance of India’s pavilion in the Dubai expo 2020.
Pavilions are the subsidiary buildings constructed attached to the main building, used for shelter, concerts, conferences, seminars. Each country participant is assigned a theme that they adhere to while constructing the pavilion. In their respective pavilion, the countries exhibit technological innovations, cultures, traditions, and build a positive identity.
Expo creates a miniature world that is a replica of the current real-world and gives an idea about future cities and their citizens.
Located Al Fosan Park is adjacent to the ‘Opportunity’ district. India pavilion is a 4 storey structure that will depict cultural diversity, achievements, new edge technologies, and ancient treasures. The outer facade of the buildings is made with 600 individual blocks that use the kinetic architecture of mosaic of rotating panels.
During the day the facade will display different patterns to celebrate 75 years of independence and each week these pattens will take stories from 25 sub-themes allotted into the expo. In the evenings the facade will turn into a vibrant event.
As you enter the pavilion, you will be joined with starry night; the space room will have 75 years of India’s journey into space along with a LED screen globe then followed by a yoga exhibit then terrarium which will focus on ayurveda. You will also enjoy open theatre, shops.
India Pavillion will also conduct conferences, movies, cultural programs, food festivals, workshops, debates, and B2B meetings. India will take this opportunity to showcase the grit of Indians fighting against the covid 19 and innovations created during pandemic times
