    Oman reveals frankincense-inspired pavilion

    The healing, connecting and unifying power of frankincense will enliven the scenes at the Oman Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai

    The Oman Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will bring to life the Sultanate’s story of national progress through an exploration of frankincense.

    The eye-catching design of the pavilion is inspired by Boswellia sacra, the tree from which the precious resin is harvested. With an asymmetrical, flowing form that is reminiscent of the tree’s low, shade-giving branches, the structure appears to envelop and protect life.

    For the past 5,000 years, frankincense has been valued for its power to lift spirits and encourage wellbeing. Transported by intrepid navigators who journeyed across land and sea, the resin was traded through a vast network of business partnerships and international friendships, transcending languages, cultures and continents.

    Visitors to the pavilion will pass through five zones, illuminating how frankincense contributed to Omani advancements in transportation, knowledge, manufacturing, sustainability and exploration.

    Designed to connect minds across time and space, this journey will feature both large-scale, high-impact moments, as well as subtle interactive experiences created using Oman-developed augmented and mixed reality technology.

    This modern telling of the story of Oman will be rooted in respect for the nation’s past, inspired by its innovative present and shaped by its optimistic vision for the future. Located in Expo’s Mobility Thematic District, the Oman Pavilion will showcase the country’s outward-looking nature, talent, expertise, innovative spirit and youthful population, as well as its valuable resources and stunning natural beauty. Oman is the latest country to reveal the design and theme of its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. More are expected to follow in the coming months.
