I like it. The dome has some 20's futuristic vibe to it.

Leaders UAE 2017: Expo 2020 Dubai construction update

Ahmed Al Khatib, vice president of real estate and delivery at Expo 2020 Dubai, tells delegates how construction works for the universal exposition are progressing, and outlines how he and his colleagues are working to realise the emirate’s ambitious vision...

[...]

Al Khatib also touched on the finer details of Al Wasl Plaza, the 150m-wide, 69m-tall domed trellis of which will act as Expo 2020’s centrepiece. Designed by Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, Al Wasl Plaza’s dome will act as a gigantic 360° projection screen, and feature “top-class” audio-visual (AV) systems.

[...]

“We are ahead of schedule in some areas and, in other areas, we are on schedule,” he explained. “Currently, we have approximately 8,000 workers on site.

“From a timeline perspective, we started the early works back in 2015, [and they completed] in 2016. We have moved approximately 5,000,000m3 of sand. Just to give [some perspective,] Dubai Water Canal [required the excavation of] 3,000,000m3, so we’ve moved almost double that quantity.

“By the end of this year, we’ll have 100% detailed designs for all [components].”

Al Khatib told delegates that Expo 2020’s site infrastructure works, which commenced in 2016, are progressing “very well”, and that they are due to complete by the end of next year.
