Dubai Expo 2020
Fri. 1 Oct. 2021 - Thu. 31 March 2022
The World Expo will take place in an Arab country for the first time.
Transsolar is working on three pavilions at the same time.
There is the German Pavilion or "Campus Germany". It is intended to present a modern, future-oriented image of the country and has the sub-theme of sustainability. The Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA) has designed it as a vertical ensemble of structures with an imposing roof construction and a wide, open atrium in the centre. The building elements are arranged vertically instead of horizontally. The well-calculated design of the campus allows for low material requirements and ensures low energy consumption.

For the first time, the state of Baden-Württemberg is the only region alongside 192 nations to present itself with its own pavilion at a world exhibition. The architects/planners are Von M GmbH from Stuttgart. The focus is on innovative solutions and ideas from the fields of infrastructure, mobility, architecture, Industry 4.0, energy, AI and bioeconomy.
Challenging goal: The Baden-Württemberg Pavilion will be climate-neutral.
The exhibition shows technological innovation with low material use and is characterised by sustainability - in accordance with the motto of the house "Feel the Spirit of Innovation".
Last but not least, the Singapore Pavilion, designed by WOHA. Under the motto Nature. Nurture. Future, it is planned as a dense, multi-layered three-dimensional green space that reflects the development of the small island state of Singapore, which has evolved into a liveable city in a garden.
Transsolar provides a pleasant climate while striving for a balanced water and energy balance. A view of a future that is possible with net-zero design.
