    Al Wasl Crowning | Expo 2020 Dubai

    Top that! Not your ordinary crown

    800+ people, over one million man hours, one engineering feat

    What does it take to crown the jewel of the Expo 2020 Dubai site?



    It’s certainly a feat of precision engineering, but getting to this point wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and grit of the team of workers from 14 different countries across the globe.

    Once fully completed, Al Wasl dome will be the largest 360-degree projection surface in the world. It’s taken over one million man hours and 14 months of preparation to get to this point.



    The structure in a nutshell




    Creating this focal point for visitors to Expo 2020 was truly a global collaboration. The teamwork of everyone involved created a real connection, giving even more significance to Al Wasl’s name, which means ‘connection’ in Arabic.
