The Spain Pavilion receives the Bronze award for its exhibition design at Expo 2020 Dubai
The Spain Pavilion receives the bronze award for Best Exhibition Design by the Bureau International des Expositions and the Exhibitor Magazine award for Best Interactive Activity of the Expo for The Forest of Intelligence.
The Spain Pavilion was recognized yesterday, March 30, by the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), as the third pavilion with the best exhibition design within the category of large pavilions (more than 2,500 m2).
The French organization in charge of the Convention relating to International Exhibitions, gave the Spain Pavilion the Bronze trophy in recognition of its extraordinary contribution to Expo 2020 Dubai and its fulfillment of the collective mission of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.
State-of-the-art technology has been used in the manufacture of the bronze trophy. His design has first been carefully transferred to a mold made using innovative 3D printing techniques. Afterwards, it was divided into ten equal parts of silver to make the dome. Next, a team of silversmiths meticulously smoothed each piece, filing and welding them together to achieve a perfect result. Finally, it was polished and plated in bronze.
This award is due to its magnificent architectural project created by Amann-Cánova-Maruri studio (Temperaturas Extremas Arquitectos S.L.P.), as well as its exhibition concept, designed by Carmelo Zapulla (External References) and Aleix Fernández (Onionlab). Located in the Sustainability district and with an area of 5,800 m2, the Spain Pavilion stands out for the iconic strength of tis design and its “bioclimatic architecture” adapted to the hot desert environment of Dubai.
The Spain Pavilion has also been awarded the Exhibitor Magazine award for the Best Interactive Activity of the Expo for The Forest of Intelligence. This exhibition area invites the public to reflect on the importance of adopting sustainable habits. Located in the gallery area, one of the most important parts of the Spain Pavilion, The Forest of Intelligence is an abstraction of a real forest, created artificially from biodegradable materials, 3D printing and photobioreactors that are responsible for generating oxygen. This forest immerses us in the latest sustainability projects in Spain.
