With an area of 13,059 sq meters, Saudi Arabia’s pavilion, which holds LEED Platinum certification, will be the second largest at Expo 2020 Dubai, the official Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported Tuesday.
“Designed in an innovative and sustainable way, the [Saudi] pavilion tells viewers about the nature of the Kingdom and [is] a glimpse into its history and future,” WAM said in an infographic.
Expo 2020 Dubai will take place from October 1, 2021, until March 31, 2022.
According to WAM, the pavilion includes the “Vision” showcase, a giant 30-meter ball placed on interactive flooring that takes you on a visual and audio journey.
There will also be a business park, which will be a platform for building various investment opportunities and partnerships.
An exploration area will be a part of the pavilion, where visitors can learn about Saudi Arabia’s role in various fields, including investment, energy, economy, and the arts.
The Kingdom’s pavilion holds LEED Platinum certification, a green building rating system.
LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a part of the US Green Building Council.
According to its website, LEED certification provides independent verification of a building or neighborhood’s green features, allowing for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, cost-effective buildings.”
