From January 22 to April 10, visitors can now take a tour of the Expo 2020’s Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion.

The Expo 2020 Pavilions Premiere was launched on Saturday.

Pavilions Premiere bookings can be made online from January 16 with tickets costing AED 25.

Visitors are urged to book early with limited operating hours and capacity restrictions due to expanded health and safety measures.

Pavilions Premiere offers visitors a preview of Expo 2020’s Thematic Pavilions and will provide a glimpse of what is to come when Expo 2020 Dubai – the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region – welcomes visitors from throughout the world from October 1, 2021 to  March 31, 2022.

Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion, will open to the public on  January 22, while Alif – The Mobility Pavilion and Mission Possible – The Opportunity Pavilion, will follow later in the first quarter of 2021.

“We are delighted to start 2021 on such a positive note, as we welcome the UAE community to be the first to experience Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion, at a moment in our history that is unparalleled, in terms of its impact on humanity,” said Reem Al Hashemy, Director-General of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau and UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation.

The iconic pavilion, designed by world-renowned Grimshaw Architects, sets an example for sustainable building design. Built to be net-zero for both energy and water, it features 1,055 photovoltaic panels arranged on a 130-metre-wide roof canopy and atop a series of ‘Energy Trees’. The pavilion also uses cutting-edge water-reduction strategies, along with water recycling and alternative water sources.
