Focused on architecture, culture, and innovation, the world expo, held for the first time in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia, will gather almost 191 national participants. New images circulating showcase completed structures such as the Dubai Exhibition Centre and Al Wasl Plaza by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, the world’s largest unsupported dome at the intersection of the expo's three thematic districts, ready pavilions such as France by Atelier Pérez Prado + Celnikier & Grabli, Nigeria and Germany by GmbH and ADUNIC AG (concept design, planning, and implementation) and LAVA (architecture/spatial concepts), while also revealing never seen visualizations of China and India’s interventions.

Expo 2020 Dubai has also unveiled images of an observation tower soaring 55 meters above the ground, located in Jubilee Park, with an upper-planted floor planted, designed by Asif Khan. In fact, the London-based designer was also responsible for creating the Expo’s three Entry Portals using strands of ultra-lightweight carbon-fiber composite and Expo 2020’s Public Realm. In addition, situated between Al Wasl Plaza and Jubilee Park, the Expo 2020 will include giant sheets of water tumbling down 13-meter-high vertical walls, created by California-based WET Design. These water features are encircled by a series of curving paths with at the center a circle of fire that produces bursts of flames.
