Co-designed by the Eden Project, the ground-breaking visitor experience known as Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion has opened as part of Expo 2020 Dubai.
The experience is the first Eden-design project to open outside the UK. Working alongside partners Thinc Design, Grimshaw and Expo 2020 Dubai, Eden Project International co-led the landscape design and visitor experience.
The Terra Pavilion, which features sustainable technologies including rotating ‘energy trees’ and ‘water trees’ that allow a passive method of dew harvesting, is being showcased at Expo 2020 Dubai. The event runs from October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022.
The Dubai-based project is part of Eden Project International’s worldwide expansion, as the group continues to develop attractions in China, Australia, Northern Ireland, New Zealand and Peru.
As David Harland, chief executive of Eden Project International, comments: “We are continuing to make progress on our international projects, and we hope soon that we will be able to confirm funding for Eden Project North in Morecambe in Lancashire.
“We are also under construction in Qingdao in China and are working hard to make our other global projects a reality. We are very excited about the next few years!” Hardland added.
