Austria Pavilion Project - Dubai Expo 2020
This project involves construction of Austria Pavilion, located between Switzerland and China pavilions in the Opportunity District at the Expo 2020 site in Dubai. The Pavilion will be built using a 9,000-year-old building material comprising sand, silt and clay. The exterior will feature some 60 interlaced cones of differing heights created from loam, a compostable soil that has been used in construction for centuries. The positioning of the cones allows natural ventilation and can reduce temperature by up to 10-degrees Celsius, thus reducing mechanical cooling load. An Innovation Lab will also host temporary exhibitions, workshops and installations. The design for this facility would present the country as 'a centre of innovation', and focus on questions about how resources can be used more thoughtfully and respectfully in the future. The exhibition area for the Austrian pavilion comprises 2,400 square meters: unlocking the potential within individuals and communities to shape the future. In this time where huge amounts of information create misleading answers for complex issues, the Austrian Pavilion will focus on a framework of innovations. The project also includes an exhibition center, outdoor spaces, infrastructural facilities and associated facilities. The development is expected to be completed in Q3, 2020.
