Monaco Pavilion takes inspiration from the iconic landmark ‘The Rock’
With one year to go before the opening, the external structure of the Monaco Pavilion is almost completed. All of the solar panels that make up the rock and the cutting of the atypically shaped windows are being finalised. They will be connected to the city of Dubai’s grid at the beginning of December, thus starting the process of self-supplying the Pavilion with energy until the opening and throughout the duration of the event.
On the water supply side, the irrigation, drinking water and fire-fighting networks have also been installed and the landscaping is also being finalised.
Once the core and shell is completed, the pavilion will be closed, tempered, and kept under surveillance until it reopens at the end of May. The interior scenography and the various elements making up the stations to be visited will be delivered and installed from June, as will the wastewater treatment system and the air compressor.
This unprecedented edition, which is expected to welcome more than 190 countries and 25 million visitors, promises to once again bring together a world recovering from this pandemic around a common goal: Connecting minds, creating the future.
The Monaco Pavilion will be keen to demonstrate its efforts in the field of the environment and ecology, as well as its savoir-faire in education, construction, and science.
