Brisbane-based architecture firm, bureau^proberts and creative studio and workshop, UAP (Urban Art Projects) will take centre stage at Expo 2020 in Dubai as the designers of Australia’s pavilion.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Australian Pavilion would be a space within Expo 2020 for Queensland businesses to interact with delegations from all over the world including Asia, Europe and the Americas.
“Dubai has long been a popular tourist stopover, but next year the city will welcome the world for Expo 2020 – the first world expo ever staged in the Middle East,” the Premier said.
“25 million people are expected to visit Dubai Expo 2020 over 173 days and more than 190 countries are confirmed to participate.
“The Australian Pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020 will host a targeted business program, a contemporary arts program, VIP events and trade and investment promotions.
“I’m pleased UAP has been selected to deliver the design for the Australian Pavilion – a Queensland company tasked with representing the very best of our State and our nation.”
“Dubai is also interested to learn about our experience hosting major events following the success of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games this time last year.”
UAP partnered with Brisbane-based architects bureau^proberts, to propose an imaginative and innovative design, which will provide a compelling participation space for Australia.
