It’s a case of Mad Dogs and Englishmen again with Grimshaw’s proposal to bring some shade to the UAE with its Expo 2020 pavilion, launched at Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week. The Sustainability Pavilion, developed with Buro Happold, Eden Project’s Tim Smit and Dennis Bushnell from NASA Langley, will be 8,000m2 of exhibition space, auditorium, courtyard and reservoir with an over-arching PV impregnated roof structure. It’s planned to be a permanent Exploratorium after the Expo.
