2021 | Expo 2020 Dubai (AE)KSA Pavilion
Deep in the realms of the Expo 2020 Dubai, more precisely in the Opportunity District, it seemingly rises out of the earth – the country pavilion of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In the shape of a colossal monolith it is set into the earth at an angle of 24 degrees and houses customized and state-of-the-art multimedia technology, inside and out!
KLT was responsible for the design of the audiovisual systems from concept to completion, together with the architects and designers of Boris Micka & Associates. The media technology solutions are 100% integrated into the architecture and the design process for the technology informed the building design.
With the longest interactive water feature of 32 m, the largest LED mirror screen with 1,305.5 sqm and the largest interactive lighting floor with 8,500 LED lights, it has not only broken three Guinness World Records already, but also truly reflects the past, present and future of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through groundbreaking technology.
Covering an area of two soccer fields and measuring about 13,000 sqm, it is the second largest country pavilion after the UAE and designed as a legacy pavilion which means it will still remain after the expo, so the systems have been designed with long term use in mind.
The pavilion is one of the most technically advanced projects that KLT has ever worked on, using media technology of every kind on a scale not seen before for such an attraction. It has received numerous awards, including the coveted BIE Gold Medal and the prestigious Inavation Award!
