Expo 2020 Dubai continues to showcase its most prominent creations, including the Expo 2020 Water Feature.
The waterfall is located in a special area, between Al Wasl Square and Jubilee Park, and it is one of the scenes in this unique global event, especially as it combines water flows and striking fiery formations.
The Expo Falls consist of three sloping water plates, 13 meters high.
The Expo Water Feature is a blend of nature, that is the water, earth and fire.
It is noteworthy that the landmark is surrounded by large planted walls, punctuated by three openings to a pivotal area that leads visitors below ground level.
In addition to the landscape and architectural elements surrounding the Expo Water Feature in a way that connects people through the dynamic movement within the park, and also allows the interaction between the adjacent spaces, each wave of water shoots to a musical tone, creating an orchestral masterpiece performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.

The original piece was composed by award-winning German composer Ramin Djawadi, whose work includes the main theme music for Game of Thrones.
The falls’ 153 individual waves range from shimmering plates to bursts of water that literally bounce off the walls as they descend dramatically into the plaza below as the water disappears through the stones.
At night, the waves reflect themselves, creating a scene defying gravity as they cascade up the walls.

In keeping with the global topic of sustainability, the circle of fire that is part of the integrated display of these waterfalls is produced with pure hydrogen, and therefore no carbon.
There are other landmarks that have attracted the whole world, and have become the talk of the town, but the most famous of them is the Expo Water Feature.

Towards a brightly colored fiery circle, the waterfalls cascade up into the sunset with world-class orchestral pieces.
Al Wasl Square extends over an area of 40 meters of tall palm trees and aromatic plants, which receives the audience before the waterfalls view through a series of curved paths surrounding the waterfalls like ripples in a pool of water.
