Wade through a misty lake of cold air, tuck into modern German cuisine and probe the secrets of future manufacturing – it’s all possible at the Baden-Württemberg House at Expo 2020 Dubai.
This marks the southwest German state’s first ever pavilion at a World Expo – and the design and content are a tribute to the region’s innovative spirit.
The 2,700 sqm building showcases high-tech sustainable architecture and hides a cold air lake, which visitors can wade through once it is made visible by an ‘innovation cloud’, an artificially created layer of mist.
Elsewhere, an interactive smart factory encourages visitors to get a hands-on feel for high-tech production processes of the future, while a ‘modern Black Forest parlour’ is the perfect spot for a culinary treat.
Baden-Württemberg has a well-deserved reputation as a hub for smart industries, and several world-famous luxury car manufacturers are headquartered in the state.
Its pavilion at Expo 2020 will display the state’s engineering prowess and futuristic technologies, supporting the next World Expo’s own ambition to promote regional success stories and their wider global impact.
As part of Expo 2020’s sustainable legacy plans, with 80 per cent of the site to be retained, Baden-Württemberg House will continue to connect minds and create the future post-Expo as a centre of learning.
