1) Presentation of the UAE (United Arab Emirates) pavilion


The UAE develop in their pavilion the theme of « Food for the Soul. » The exhibition is based on two pillars: a presentation of the cultural, technical, ethical and medical issues implyed by feeding the planet population and the absolute necessity that food become sustainable and shared.

In this hall, the UAE also address the issue of food security.

The pavilion, container of fresh and original ideas, is the representation of a lush oasis in an iconic architecture that widely uses new technology to a substantial reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.

It is one of the largest pavilions and is located at the center of the exhibition, next to Decuman.

The basic principles of exposition are the following:

  • Sustainable Development

The design

The pavilion covers an area of 4326 square meters and was designed by Foster + Partners, an architectural firm in London.
