Akhal-Teke is a horse breed from Turkmenistan, and the majestic animals – known for their speed, endurance, and distinctive ‘metallic sheen’ – are the country’s national emblem as well.

Expo 2020 Dubai said images of five white horses would be projected onto the Turkmenistan Pavilion’s walls, reflecting the movement of people within the structure and accompanying visitors through an interactive three-sided hologram.

The pavilion will also highlight Turkmenistan’s agricultural connections through elements that represent wheat, cotton, and wind.

The Turkmen pavilion will also feature a ‘digital crop’ that will move and grow in response to touch.
