Spanish Pavilion expo 2020
Spanish Pavilion at the Universal Expo Dubai 2020
The Spain Pavilion aims to become an example of intelligent creativity, capable of uniting people around sustainable projects in the fields of science, technology, production, education and art.
It is easy to design an Exhibition Pavilion and for it to turn into a Shopping Center on the outskirts of a large city. In other words, a project without character and subject to the interests of pure commerce.
From this point of view, the difficulty of a project like this consists in not losing the focus that instead of pure representation and above de inevitable spectacle it is possible to offer the visitors a friendly and intelligent place in which to take refuge with dignity.
Given the overwhelming speed that contemporary society bears, a set of spaces offering a place for slowness are not negligible, and instead of the rush to assimilate everything we find, it is good that the Spanish Pavilion offers peace, being this one of the challenges.
The proposed Pavilion is a sequence of intertwined squares, a concatenation of intermediate spaces, of places that produce diverse experiences in which time seems to recover.
We have built a Pavilion as an open space, cooled by passive systems; a place of places that can be reused in other locations when the expo disappears, with materials that can easily be reused or recycled.
If someone would ask where the doors of this Pavilion are located, the answer is simple: where the shadow begins.
