The winning design for the Polish pavilion at Expo 2020 by WXCA



Quote:
The winning entry by Warsaw architectural studio WXCA was chosen from 30 entries for its close attention to the theme of mobility – one of three themes for the world fair, along with opportunity and sustainability.
Sitting across a plot of 2,000 square metres, the structure will be made from wooden boxes that look like shipping containers. They will be surrounded by steel rods holding thousands of paper birds, which from a distance blur the lines of the building.
“The theme is the migration of birds because around half or three quarters of the birds that are found in the Arab world are born and nest in Poland and seasonally migrate.
“The design combines the idea of nature and technology, and we have a very strong aviation business down in the south of Poland, so anything that is related to birds is good.”

ITALY: BEAUTY CONNECTS PEOPLE
EXPO DUBAI 2020

italyexpo2020.it


Italian Pavilion at the next Universal Exposition in Dubai in 2020 is an architectural work that brings to life, with creativity and innovation, the "beauty that connects people", the Italian beauty that has always been a key element connecting different populations, talents and ingenuities and the shared Mediterranean cultural inheritance, serving as a bridge to the future.

The international competition for the design of the Italian Pavilion was concluded with the awarding of the grouping of companies consisting of CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati, Italo Rota Building Office, F&M Ingegneria and Matteo Gatto & Associati.


The Italian Pavilion will take up a surface of around 3,500 square meters, will be over 25 meters tall and will be located in an area of high visibility within the site of Expo 2020 Dubai.

In the architectural project, the hulls of three Italian ships arrived by sea shall be overturned and raised one next to the other on tall pillars, becoming the cover of the Pavilion. Each of them painted in a different way, the three hulls will appear, seen from above, like three petals composing the colors of the Italian flag. The Pavilion's architecture celebrates the history of Italian explorers who, throughout the centuries, sailed the seas and reached distant lands, weaving together contacts and relations around the world. The Italian Pavilion tells the story of a journey into the beauty of Italy, constant fruit of contaminations, exchanges and connections of knowledge, ingenuity, talent and art. At the same time, the overturning of the hulls is a choice based on sustainability, that also connects to an ancient tradition of seafaring populations and fishermen from Europe and the world.



“The project allows us to realize not only an exhibition space, but a space that represents the best of Italian ingenuity, offering a memorable experience to visitors, and showing the world multidisciplinary competences, talents and intelligences that can become promoters of new educational, professional and entrepreneurial opportunities. The Italian Pavilion will be realized with the contributions of partner companies – large, medium and small – called to provide the best structural, engineering, technological and scenographic components, that are able to demonstrate the most innovative competences committed today to sustainability, to the circular economy, to digital architecture." says Paolo Glisenti, General Commissioner for Italy at Expo 2020 Dubai.

“Turning over and reusing the ships was an act that had a profound appeal to us: not only because it is laden with historical value, but because it represents the realization of a circular architecture from the project’s beginning. The ships that become part of the Pavilion can continue to be used in different ways even after the end of the Expo" explains Carlo Ratti, founding partner of CRA design practice and director of the MIT Senseable City Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

"The exhibition path will be marked by a gradual ascent until a point where it becomes possible, with some help from the imagination, to observe Italy from the sky" explains architect Italo Rota, founding partner of Italo Rota Building Office: "There will be a ‘Prologue’ with large spaces inspired by the forms of important Italian piazze, and a Grand Finale that will be almost like a cathedral to nature, to light, to the music of the universe, like the sky over the Mediterranean and the Desert."

Kazakhstan to participate in EXPO 2020 Dubai.

Kazakhstan will participate in EXPO 2020 Dubai. The country will present one of the largest pavilions with an area of almost 3,500 square meters at the World Expo.

According to experts, Kazakhstan’s participation in the exhibition will showcase the country’s experience gained while hosting the EXPO 2017 in its capital city.

Experts believe that Kazakhstan demonstrated its commitment to green technology developments.

Meanwhile, hosting of the expo had a positive impact on the country’s image as well.

According to Secretary-General of Bureau International des Expositions, Vicente Loscertales, EXPO held in the Kazakh capital is not a past international event but an ongoing project which still exists.

“It is the vision of your First President and this vision continues to change the country,” he said.

The expo will be held in Dubai between October 20th, 2020 and April 10th, 2021.

The World Expo will focus on three sub-themes, such as Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. The organizers expect to welcome about 25 million visitors.
