The United Arab Emirates Pavilion is a huge golden sand dune inspired by the country's desert. The outer covering of the pavilion is gold-colored stainless steel. Its undulating roof, looking as if it has been shaped by the wind, makes the pavilion shimmer and change colors, reminding visitors of the Middle East country's various natural environments.
Taking a virtual journey, visitors may begin to understand the spirit of the UAE people who have created life in the desert and have learned from their forefathers how to create shade, to escape heat, and to survive in a harsh environment. Along the path, flower beds and trees are everywhere, creating a scene of fantasy completely alien to the dunes. Without the wisdom of people, there will be no miracle.
Highlight 1: Smart Design
Desert comprised of sands in red, golden and white colors, the ups and downs of hills, a scattered oasis ringed with ancient camel bells, and boats with glimmering sails on the ocean are all staged in the video, which remind us of what an important role the natural environment and wild life play in the culture and lifestyle of the UAE people.
Highlight 2: Legendary Land
Creative film producers will intoxicate visitors with a fantasic journey. In this legendary land, primeval tropical desert is next to modern skyscrapers. Visitors will be enthralled by the perfect combination of the present and the past, seeing year-round sunlight, clean beaches, dunes, merchants on camel back, spice markets, oasis, golf courses, sand skiing, diving, water skiing, parachute jump and fishing all at the same time.
Highlight 3: Fantastic Journey
The shape of the pavilion is designed in response to Shanghai's weather. It protects against the direct glare of the city's summer sun but allows indirect light to enter the pavilion via louvers. Visitors will approach the "dunes" by a walkway, which follows a stream of water towards the entrance.
Highlight 4: Lucky Draw
Do not forget the interactive game zone after the whole visit, which will offer the favorites a journey to the UAE, to see the wonderful land by themselves.
