Calatrava's UAE Pavilion Through the Lens of Stephane Aboudaram

A "symbolic interpretation of the flow of movement", Calatrava’s design for the UAE Pavilion at the 2020 Expo Dubai is a 15,000 square meters immersive and multisensory experience. Images recently shot by Stephane Aboudaram highlight a structure of 28 automated cantilevered wings, that open and rotate at a range of 110 and 125 degrees. Moreover, these photos also show a central skylight, that mimics the logo of this year’s expo.

Designed by Santiago Calatrava, the UAE pavilion embodies the theme of "wings that depict the flow of movement". Integrated within a context of greenery, the project seeks to introduce visitors to the history, culture, and innovations of the UAE.
