Alif, Terra pavilions open on Sept. 1

Ahead of the official opening of the Expo City Dubai site in October, visitors are invited to experience two of its most popular pavilions from September 1, with the re-opening of Alif – The Mobility Pavilion and Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion marking the first chapter of Expo City Dubai’s journey.

Terra – a world-class example of sustainable best practice in architecture and design – will encourage visitors to re-evaluate their relationship with the environment through an immersive journey through ocean and forest, while Alif will transport explorers through time and across new horizons to discover how mobility has driven human progress throughout history.
