Work begins on Expo 2020 Dubai's 'transparent' Azerbaijan Pavilion
The nature-inspired facility spans 2,100m2 and will offer its visitors clear views of the Expo 2020 Dubai site
Azerbaijan has revealed the design of its nature-inspired 'transparent' pavilion for Expo 2020 Dubai after receiveing its plot and breaking ground on the project.
The pavilion has been designed on the theme of ‘Seeds for the Future’ to convey the importance of future-planning with a focus on youth.
Expo 2020 Dubai's Azerbaijan Pavilion will be spread across an area of 2,100m2 at the site, with its design supported by Heydar Aliyev Center.
Architectural designs are inspired from trees and leaves and are aimed at mirroring issues related to sustainable development.
Anar Alakbarov, director of Heydar Aliyev Center in capital Baku, and Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, executive director of Dubai Expo 2020 Bureau, revealed the pavilion's design.
“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.
Running from 20 October, 2020 to 10 April 2021, Expo 2020 Dubai expects a footfall of more than 25 million visitors, 70% of whom will be from outside the UAE.
