Dubai has announced winners of the three theme pavilions of Expo 2020. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Expo Higher Committee and Chairman of Dubai Airports and Emirates Airline, in partnership with Emaar Properties, revealed the winners of one of the world’s most prestigious architectural competitions to design the theme pavilions for Expo 2020. Thirteen of the world’s leading architectural firms took part in a global competition, launched in July 2015 by Emaar on behalf of Expo 2020. The competition sought to identify the designs for the three theme pavilions of Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability, under the Expo’s 2020 theme of Connecting Minds, Creating the Future. Pavilions and their iconic architecture are central to World Expos, and the three pavilions will be centrepieces that showcase the latest ideas, innovations and developments while providing visitors with an immersive and memorable experience.
