Es Devlin Will Build The UK’s Pavillion at Expo 2020 in DubaiTuesday 16 October 2018
Es Devlin Will Build The UK’s Pavillion at Expo 2020 in Dubai ⇒ Es Devlin, the London-based designer, has just been announced as the as the winner of the large-scale competition for the design of the UK Pavillion at the upcoming World Expo, set to take place in 2020 in Dubai. The award-winning creative has created a structure centred on British expertise in artificial intelligence and space, entitled ‘The Poem Pavilion’.
‘The idea draws directly on one of Stephen Hawking’s final projects, “Breakthrough Message”, a global competition that Hawking and his colleagues conceived in 2015 inviting people worldwide to consider what message we would communicate to express ourselves as a planet, should we one day encounter other advanced civilizations in space’, says Devlin. ‘What if the UK Pavilion at Expo 2020 becomes a place where visitors from all over the world take part in a collective global project that showcases British expertise in A.I. technologies and poetry while transcending national identities?’
Devlin will work with brand experience agency Avantgarde, who will take on the project’s production. Structural engineers Atelier One and award-winning sustainability engineers Atelier Ten will also be involved in bringing this ambitious design to life.
