Hertfordshire-headquartered Brogan Group has been providing the access scaffolding to support the construction of the Monaco Pavilion, which is based on the theme of “Monaco 360° - a World of Opportunities”, at Expo 2020 Dubai that will run from 1 October, 2021 to 31 March, 2022.

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

The pavilion covers a total area of about 1,770m2 and will be set over different levels reflecting the maze-like streets of the French Riviera, featuring an exhibition area, souvenir shop, and a restaurant on the ground floor.

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

During the six-month period of the World Expo, the pavilion — which is located within the Opportunity District — will be managed and operated by Monaco Inter Expo, the country’s State-owned Monegasque Company (SAM).
