Dubai 2020 Expo: Living Rainforests, Augmented Reality and More

Lifestyle

Expo 2020 Dubai is now on until 31 March 2022. With its gorgeous displays of architecture — from augmented reality to living buildings — the event is guaranteed to delight.

For the uninitiated, the Expo 2020 Dubai show is the latest edition of World Expos held around the globe. The World Expo series has been running since the 19th century in 1851. The first event was held in London and was called the Great Exhibition. The exhibition is a global gathering of nations to create solutions to the most pressing issues today with engaging activities for millions of visitors.

If you’re planning to head down to Dubai’s event, make sure to check out these pavilions:

The standout feature in Belgium’s pavilion is the lush Green Arch exterior showcasing the process of biomimicry — a concept in which solutions to modern-day situations are modelled on nature. 

China 

Unsurprisingly, China has the largest pavilion at the exhibition. China’s impressive display has practically floated into Dubai in the shape of a traditional Chinese lantern. Its pavilion features ancient innovations with a modern spin on them. At night, the lantern delivers a dazzling light show on its façade.

Cuba

If you’re a fan of mojitos, you’re going to love Cuba’s pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai. Head on over and you’ll be able to try a faux mixed version of the sweet and minty drink while also learning about the history of the sugar cane capital of the world. You’ll also get to learn how to dance the country’s iconic cha-cha-cha dance.

France

An interactive exhibition titled, “Notre-Dame de Paris, the Experience” showcases the cathedral’s 850 year-long history using augmented reality. It takes visitors through the cathedral’s construction in the Middle Ages, its role in the religious, political and cultural landscape of France, and the restoration work after the fire in 2019.

Hungary

Hungary’s pavilion is sure to make a splash. The country has more thermal hot springs than any other country in Europe and that fact is made clear throughout its entire display. Guests can take a dip into its interactive exhibition learning about its unique water resources, curative waters, and bathing culture.

Saudi Arabia

Before Expo 2020 had even begun, Saudi Arabia’s pavilion had already won three world records. The first of which is the world’s largest interactive lighting floor, it has 7,998 LED lights for visitors to interact with. Called “Vision”, the art exhibition showcases its culture and was curated entirely by Saudi artists. The pavilion also has the world’s largest LED mirror screen and the longest interactive water feature.

Singapore

True to Singapore’s motto of “City in a Garden”, you’ll be hard-pressed to find where architecture ends and nature begins. More of a tropical rainforest than a pavilion, it shows the world that architecture should be an extension of nature.

UAE

Practically the most important pavilion you would need to visit at the Expo, the UAE pavilion showcases Emirati milestones — from constructing the tallest building in the world to reaching Mars — and culture over four storeys.
