So where can one expect to find the pavilion? Well, according to Dubai Municipality, it will be “strategically located” opposite Al Wasl Plaza in the centre of the 4.38 sq km exhibition area.
Dubai Media Office released a video introducing the pavilion, which you can see below.
The sleek design has been modelled on the wings of a falcon, the UAE’s national bird, by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, who also happens to be the designer of The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, soon to be the world’s tallest building once work completes – coming it at more than 100 metres taller than the Burj Khalifa. Calatrava won a global design competition for the pavilion, following entries from nine top architectural firms.
