DUBAI – Ahead of the grand opening of Expo 2020 in Dubai, the Philippines has given a preview of what visitors can expect when they visit the Philippine Pavilion starting on October 1.
The coral-reef inspired Philippine Pavilion, aptly called Bangkóta, will treat visitors to a fully sensory experience. Watch this digital walkthrough of the pavilion:
According to the Department of Trade and Industry, the Philippine Pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai “unveils the movement of a people that began 4,000 years ago and continues to this day”.
The multi-tiered pavilion will house pockets of gardens featuring local flora and fauna. It will also have viewing decks, exhibit areas, and a winding walkway spanning 385sqm.
The pavilion is set to be the Philippines’ biggest World Expo pavilion yet, with a total area of 3,163sqm and 1,386sqm dedicated to the pavilion structure.
It will sit in the Sustainability District of the Dubai Expo 2020 site, between the pavilions of Canada and Portugal. ICA/Expat Media
