Germany's scientific and technological achievements will be showcased at its 4,500m² high-tech pavilion, which is set to be among the largest at Expo 2020 Dubai.
Created by Cologne-based Facts and Fiction and Berlin architectural firm Lava, Campus Germany, as the pavilion is referred to, has been designed with separate modules that meet together in the middle of an atrium.
The highlight, though, is an intelligence assistance system called Iamu, which will be showcased for the first time in the world.
Iamu technology will be an “invisible companion to visitors” guiding them through the multi-storey Campus Germany pavilion, which has three labs covering energy, smart cities, and biodiversity, Expo 2020 Dubai said in a statement.
A large pit containing 155,000 balls celebrating individual sustainability achievements will also be housed within Campus Germany.
Germany will pump $57.9m (AED213m) into its participation at the Sustainability District in Expo 2020 Dubai.
Meanwhile, construction is advancing quickly on the expo, with Phase 1 infrastructure done, and the Phase 2 infrastructural package scheduled for completion before the end of 2018.
The steelwork pieces forming the domed trellis of Al Wasl Plaza are being erected. Construction on the three Thematic Districts is well under way too, with foundations and structural works complete. Precast production and installation is now taking place as well, with façade, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, and public-realm works also in progress.
