Poland is all set to showcase a combination of its design, art, and technological achievements, when Expo 2020 Dubai opens to the world on 1 October 2021, with the team behind the country’s participation and the construction of its pavilion working “intensively over the last few months”.
The Polish Pavilion and the country’s participation are based on the theme, “Poland. Creativity inspired by nature.”
The theme aims to showcase a “strong cooperation centre” that, through the development of science, offers the world sustainable, environmentally friendly technologies, inspired by nature.
In a statement, the team behind the country’s participation said that the ideas behind the Polish presentation, were developed as part of extensive cooperation between ministries, public administration institutions, and the culture as well as science sectors.
With less than a year to go, construction progress on the Expo site has been continuing at pace, in 2020 the main focus has been on the landscaping and fit-out of Expo-owned buildings, with the construction of country pavilions set to be finalised by the end of the year.
Talking on the occasion of One Year to Go for the World Expo, Adrian Malinowski, the general commissioner of the Polish Section of the World Exhibition Expo 2020 in Dubai, said: “We have been working very intensively over the last few months, on the composition of the visitor’s path and what our guests will experience in the Polish Pavilion.”
“The concept, which has been approved by the Ministry of Development, is the result of the work of many teams – creators, architects, artists, representatives of institutions, and substantive partners.
Malinowski added: “Creating a universal and original story about Poland, that will engage a foreign, culturally diverse audience, is a great challenge. I am convinced that the effect will be spectacular and that the Polish Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, will become the basis for building a message about our country, on the international arena, not only in the context of the next World Exhibition.”
Meanwhile, Poland’s preparations for its participation in the World Expo are entering a key phase.
The WXCA studio, is responsible for the architectural and thematic concept of the Polish Pavilion, with the construction being carried out by a consortium of, Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie, and FM Aldentro.
A consortium of Science Now, Stellar Fireworks, and Tellart has prepared the narrative concept as well as the comprehensive experience of the Polish Pavilion.
Talking about the exhibition and the narrative experience that await visitors at the Polish Pavilion, Jan Pomierny, Łukasz Alwast, and Nick Scappaticci, representing the consortium of Science Now, Stellar Fireworks, and Tellart, said: “The narrative chapters provide a series of compelling and positive associations with Poland manifested in the exhibition content, form and emotions.”
“We will present a modern and dynamic country that is ambitiously developing new areas of economy, science, culture, and tourism. The key messages and experience of the pavilion create opportunities to achieve wide-ranging communication goals and establish a modern platform for exciting storytelling about contemporary Poland.”
In July 2020, Malinowski told Construction Week that major works on the pavilion would take place during August and September, including the finalisation of the basic ground works as well as going through the intensive process of building the pavilion.
The contract to design, build, technically maintain, and finally dismantle the Polish Pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai site will be carried out in three phases.
The first phase includes preparing construction documentation, followed by collecting construction and organiser approvals; and erecting the pavilion with utilities, interior works, and exhibition sections, and building maintenance.
