    River-inspired Brazil Pavilion will offer hydration in the desert

    Designed around a walkable ‘water blade’, the Brazil Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will refresh visitors from around the world by recreating the sights, sounds and scents of the country’s riverside areas

    While the desert is not typically associated with lush, aqueous environments, Brazil has unveiled plans to recreate the Amazon basin in the UAE through its country pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.

    Built around a walkable ‘water blade’, the 4,000-sqm Brazil Pavilion will recreate the sights, sounds and scents of the country’s riverside areas to refresh Expo visitors from every corner of the planet.

    The building, which was designed by architects from JPG.ARQ, MMBB and Ben-Avid, will promote biodiversity, environmental preservation and competitiveness by showcasing the benefits of multiculturalism and sustainable best practice.

    Inspired by the Rio Negro – the largest left tributary of the Amazon River – the pavilion’s floor resembles the stilt houses common in the riverside areas of Brazil’s northern region. The eye-catching structure will provide shade during the day and resemble a luminous floating cube at night.

    Located in Expo 2020’s Sustainability Thematic District, the pavilion will enable Brazil to promote its diversity, gastronomy and culture to the international community.

    The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), which is responsible for developing and operating the pavilion, will use Expo 2020 as a platform to attract trade and direct foreign investment, with agribusiness and innovative technologies representing key focuses.

    Brazil 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.
