Award-winning Dubai Expo 2020 designs

Three winners were announced for three of the major pavilions following an international architecture competition run by Emaar Properties on behalf of the Expo 2020 committee.

 It sought ideas for the three theme pavilions titled Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability that form a central part of Expo 2020’s theme of “Connecting Minds, Creating The Future”.

A key criterion for the competition was ensuring that the designs not only embodied one of Expo's core themes, but also had the flexibility and longevity to live on as landmarks and functional structures after the Expo is complete in 2021.

Thirteen of the world's leading architectural firms took part in the global competition, this week’s gallery looks at the winning designs.
