Turkmenistan unveils Dubai Expo 2020 pavilion design

DUBAI, June 11, 2019

The Central Asian country of Turkmenistan has unveiled the design for its pavilion at the upcoming Dubai Expo 2020 event.

A fountain sculpture featuring majestic Akhal-Teke horses will greet visitors to the Turkmenistan Pavilion, as will a 50-m LED façade depicting the nation’s natural and historical attractions.

Native to Turkmenistan and symbolising national pride, the horses will play a prominent role in a pavilion experience that promises to immerse the five senses, said senior Turkmenistan officials.

Images of five white horses will be projected onto the walls, reflecting the movement of people within the pavilion and accompanying visitors through an interactive three-sided hologram, they explained.

The journey will guide visitors from a colourful visual show to a space that highlights the nation’s agricultural connections via elements representing wheat, cotton and wind – with a digital ‘crop’ moving and growing as it responds to touch, they added.

Turkmenistan will showcase its heritage and modern achievements, alongside the country’s spiritual dimensions, development priorities, international ties and its progress towards the sustainable development goals.

The nation is also planning to exhibit Turkmen goods and develop a programme of cultural and business events at the mega expo.

A six-month celebration, the Expo 2020 Dubai will welcome 192 countries and millions of visitors to the UAE starting from October 20 next year to April 10, 2021.-TradeArabia News Service
