We are happy to announce that our team is the first prize winner of the solutions contest ”Romania’s National Pavilion at 2020 Dubai EXPO”
The solutions contest’s purpose was to select the best proposal for envisioning and creating Romania’s National Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai for assigning the design and curatorial contract.
The theme of the "2020 Dubai Exhibition", to be held from 20th of October,2020 to 10th of April 2021, is "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" and wishes to assert a global need for collaboration to inspire generations to develop partnerships between organizations, business sectors and geographical locations, as well as to better address the needs of a changing world.
For developing the main theme, 3 subthemes were chosen: opportunity, mobility and sustainability, which are the expo’s main physical sections. Romania picked the sustainability section, where it will build a national pavilion, where for 6 months activities specific for an international expo will be held: artistic & diplomatic events, permanent and temporary exhibitions, hospitality and intercultural dialogue actions.
““New Nature” is the concept of the pavilion and the exhibition on which the entire project is built. We find ourselves and the planet in a very fragile equilibrium that cannot be sustained any longer. Therefore, an urgent revision is necessary in order to reconnect, rethink and recreate our future. We have named this approach of finding a new valuable equilibrium - New Nature.” - claim the authors.
