Monaco's national pavilion will be located in the Opportunity District.

Set to be housed in Expo 2020 Dubai’s Opportunity District, Monaco’s gem-like polygonal pavilion has been inspired by the ‘Rock of Monaco’ — a 62m-tall monolith on the Mediterranean coast.

Designed by Facts and Fiction — which is also working on the campus-themed German pavilion — the Monaco pavilion will be showcased under the motto: Monaco 360° - a World of Opportunities.

Architecture firm Aoda, founded by Olivier Deverini, will work alongside OOS on the polygonal and faceted building for the Monegasque pavilion.

According to the video shared on Expo 2020 Dubai's official Twitter handle, visitors will have the opportunity to explore the maze-like streets of the French Riviera and complete their pavilion journey at the kaleidoscopic fantasy garden.

In February 2019, design details were revealed for Monaco’s national pavilion, which will be managed and operated by Monaco Inter Expo, the country’s State-owned Monegasque Company (SAM).

When at the pavilion, visitors will be able to visit two exhibitions including the Garden of Opportunities, which is inspired by the spectrum of warm colours of the French Riviera. The second area will showcase the identity of Monaco, depicting details of the country’s culture and history, according to a report by Dubai Media Office.

The six-month long World Expo will open its doors to more than 25 million visitors on 20 October, 2020.
