The Belgian Pavilion in Dubai

"Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" is the theme of Expo 2020 Dubai and is central to the project of the BEMOB 2020 consortium that was appointed by BelExpo for the design and construction of the Belgian pavilion. The sub-themes are opportunity, mobility, and sustainability.

Belgian international contractors BESIX, with a strong local presence of over fifty years in the UAE, apply a reality principle to the conception of this project. To translate this collaborative philosophy, the Belgian architects Assar Architects and Vincent Callebaut Architectures gladly joined forces to design an aesthetic and functional pavilion. BelExpo also works closely with the Belgian Buildings Agency.

The pavilion is located in the mobility district and can welcome around 15,000 visitors a day. The theme of our Pavilion is to catalyze architecture, structure, energy, landscape, and scenography as if the entire project had been drawn with a single pen line.
