As UAE is set to reach a 50th Anniversary Landmark, Expo 2020 is commemorating the UAE’s special occasion with a special set of activities and festivities that look at the nation’s journey since 1971. The UAE’s Golden Jubilee Celebration started on November 3 and will run for a month till December 4.
The Site-wide celebration will include craftsmanship and connection, heritage and wisdom of the past generations to present, vision, and dreams.
Located in Al Forsan Zone, next to Al Wasl Plaza, the falcon-in-flight building is hard to miss. The Pavilion will take you to Journey UAE’s Transformation from its origins to its thriving present and its visionary future.
The UAE four-storey Pavilion was informed “by a falcon in flight” and is shielded by a massive locally produced carbon wingspan comprising 28 wings that can be closed to shelter the roof of solar panels. Each of the wings pivots around a single point and the entire roof can be opened in three minutes. So important is this bird of prey that it even dominates the national emblem of the UAE.
