Expo 2020 is a host to some of the most exciting country pavilions marked by unique and stellar architecture representing each nation’s legacy and vision of the future.

Architect: Built and designed by a consortium comprising trade fair booth and pavilion contractor Expomobilia, V8 Architects, exhibition designers Kossmanndejong and engineering firm Witteveen+Bos.
Location: Sustainability District
Structure: A biotope, a miniature world where the climate is controlled naturally.
Architecture: A physical representation of the Netherlands’ key message at this international exhibition, namely the inextricable link between water, energy, and food. A climate system is being created using natural phenomena, such as condensation, solar energy, photosynthesis, fungus production, the degree of humidity, and temperature transmission. Water, energy, and food are harvested within this system in a circular manner.
Material: All of the materials used will be returned or will gain another purpose at the end. This keeps the carbon footprint of the pavilion as small as possible. The materials used in the interior are also reusable, recyclable, or biologically degradable. In this regard, it features unique innovations such as a bio-based curtain made from biopolymers, especially designed solar panels that generate energy and at the same time supply sunlight to the edible plants.
