Saudi Arabia Pavilion | Expo 2020 Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Project description:

Deep in the realms of the Expo 2020 Dubai, more precisely in the Opportunity District, it seemingly rises out of the earth – the country pavilion of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In the shape of a colossal monolith it is set into the earth at an angle of 24 degrees and houses customized and state-of-the-art multimedia technology, inside and out!

KLT was responsible for the design of the audiovisual systems from concept to completion, together with the architects and designers of Boris Micka & Associates. The media technology solutions are 100% integrated into the architecture and the design process for the technology informed the building design.

With the longest interactive water feature of 32 m, the largest LED mirror screen with 1,305.5 sqm and the largest interactive lighting floor with 8,500 LED lights, it has not only broken three Guinness World Records already, but also truly reflects the past, present and future of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through groundbreaking technology.
