Architectural designs are inspired from trees and leaves and are aimed at mirroring issues related to sustainable development.

“The pavilion will be light-filled, transparent, and welcoming, coming to life with events and opportunities to meet, just like our country,” added Alakbarov.

The pavilion is designed by Italy’s Simmetrico, the company behind Azerbaijan’s pavilion at Expo 2015 Milan.
