Terra, which means ‘Planet Earth’, will offer an immersive journey through the wonders of the natural world, including an interactive walk through the roots of the forest, where every footstep affects the ‘wood-wide-web’.
This is what’s in store for you at the pavilion
The pavilion was designed by renowned Grimshaw Architects and sets an example for sustainable building design. Built to be net-zero for both energy and water, it features 1,055 photovoltaic panels arranged on a 130-metre-wide roof canopy and atop a series of ‘Energy Trees’.
The pavilion also uses water-reduction strategies, water recycling and alternative water sources.
Terra will remain in legacy as a Science Centre that will inspire sustainable choices for generations to come. “Visitors are urged to book early as the experience will operate five days per week with limited operating hours and capacity restrictions due to enhanced health and safety measures,” it added.
Reem Al Hashimy, Director-General of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau and UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation, said: “We are delighted to start 2021 on such a positive note as we welcome the UAE community to be the first to experience Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion at a moment in our history that is unparalleled in terms of its impact on humanity.
“While 2020 may be remembered as a year that changed us forever, it has also given us a tremendous opportunity to come together as a global society and find answers to our most pressing challenges,” she said.
Expo 2020 Dubai — the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region — will run from October 1 this year to March 31, 2022.
No walk-in tickets
While the pavilion itself is segmented into sections and interesting explainers, Marjan Faraidooni, Chief Experience Officer, Expo 2020 Dubai, throws light on how visitors will be managed during the pandemic with no walk-in tickets available.
She said: “To start with, potential visitors are asked to go to our website to book their tickets … This will help us manage capacity and provide an optimal experience. Therefore, all visitors are required to make a timed-entry reservation in advance online.
“The time during the week is 3pm-9pm; and on the weekends, it is 4pm-10pm. We have tickets for each of the timings and by doing so, we can control the number of people who come to the site. It also helps us plan the number of visitors who go through the pavilion. We are expecting around 3,000 visitors every week day and 5,000 over the weekends.”
