Expo 2020 Dubai has announced the postponement of the next World Expo by one year. The global event will now run from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022, a delay that allows all participants to safely navigate the impact of COVID-19, and allows the World Expo to focus on a collective desire for new thinking to identify solutions to some of the greatest challenges of our time.
The Estonian Centre for Architecture has also announced that the 6th edition of the Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB) has been postponed until 2022.
“The peculiar times we live in has given us an extra year for the organizers and the head curator to prepare for the upcoming edition of TAB,” says Raul Järg, Director of Estonian Centre for Architecture. “This ensures enough time for a high quality theme and a comprehensive programme. We hope that the teams who are participating in the curatorial competition understand the decision and are ready to contribute also in 2022.”
