OPPORTUNITY PAVILION - EXPO 2020 DUBAI
Taking Expo Dubai 2020's supporting message "Connecting minds and creating the future" as a conceptual basis, we designed a lighting project that manages to convey the feeling of "a future to dream of" through a landscape of light that varies as you walk through it. Although each of the 3 levels has its own identity, we consider the pavilion as a whole and all the lighting solutions are connected and balanced to produce a complete, harmonious and comfortable whole. The canopies are conceived as clouds or a portion of the sky in which the diffraction of daylight is not evident, producing a kind of magical iridescence. Their lighting was been by far the greatest challenge of this project, due in part to its construction 12m above the level of the plaza, but also because of its unquestionable visual presence in the Expo nightscape and its effect on the night-time experience of the Pavilion.
