Consortium With Expomobilia Wins Contract for the Dubai EXPO 2020 Dutch Pavilion
ZURICH, November 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

A consortium comprising Expomobilia, V8 Architects, Kossmann.dejong and 
Witteveen+Bos has been selected to design and construct the Dutch Pavilion at 
EXPO 2020 in Dubai. The award was made following a European tender procedure 
with a total of eleven consortiums participating.


Circular climate control  

The winning bid will give the Netherlands a Pavilion that stands out when it 
comes to circulation and the use of innovative, sustainable technologies. The 
Pavilion is to feature a circular climate control system, seamlessly 
integrating it with the Netherlands' chosen theme: "Uniting water, energy & 
food." Visitors from both the private and business spheres will be treated to 
an intense sensory experience of natural phenomena, while the overall 
architectural appearance is to be a statement in the Dubai surroundings. In 
addition to designing and constructing the pavilion, the consortium will also 
be responsible for circular maintenance and dismantling. The design will be 
presented in December 2018.


The consortium brings together the necessary expertise for the project, with 
experience in pavilion construction (Expomobilia), architecture (V8 
Architects), interactive visitor experiences (Kossmann.dejong), and integral 
installation and construction engineering (Witteveen+Bos). The team can also 
boast a strong network in Dubai and close collaborations with Dutch start-ups 
and innovations.

Dubai EXPO 2020 

The 35th universal exposition will take place in Dubai from 20 October 2020 
until 10 April 2021. This will be the first time an international exposition is 
held in the Middle East. Some 170 participating countries will present ideas, 
innovations and technologies inspired by the Expo theme "Connecting minds, 
creating the future." The Dutch participation aims to offer a platform to Dutch 
stakeholders from both public and private sectors, helping them to strengthen 
their networks and positioning in the Gulf region - not just during the Dubai 
EXPO but also during the lead-up to the event. and
