Some interesting pavilions of the Expo

Apart from what the honorary members have to offer there are many interesting pavilions. These pavilions capture the essence of the nations and institutions they represent. Next, we will talk about some of the most interesting pavilions.

Venezuela Pavilion at Expo Dubai 2020

The Venezuelan pavilion, rather than focusing on the country’s innovation element, is closer to a national tourism fair. In it you can taste the typical Venezuelan dishes.

In addition, you can make a tasting of drinks that represent Venezuela and its productive history, such as coffee and chocolate. Both products were important agricultural products in colonial times. Currently they are products that have a high level of quality, recognized worldwide.

Other experiences designed for visitors allow the visitor to take a photo “on the angel falls”. In the Venezuela pavilion you can also get to know the Orinoco River in an immersive 360° experience.

The Venezuelan pavilion is in the Jubilee area. This pavilion was designed by the Dubai group of architects, Wanders Werner Falasi, awarded for the design of residential homes. Its design is inspired by the work of Carlos Cruz-Diez, master of kinetic art. there you can “visit” the geographical and cultural regions in which Venezuela is divided.

It was certainly a pleasant experience for Gustavo Mirabal. Gustavo Mirabal with his family could see a corner of Venezuela in the pavilion of his country in Dubai. There he was able to tell his children and his wife about the adventures of touring Venezuela. These adventures are collected in the series of articles “Gustavo Mirabal in Venezuela“.

The first thing that greets you is a set of flags of the United States waving free in the wind. At all times the reflection of freedom that architecture transmits is present.

The U.S. Pavilion seeks to celebrate freedom, diversity, and innovation. The walk begins by presenting the torch of the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of one of america’s most important values.
