PARIS, France - Expo City Dubai, the human–centric city of the future that emerged from the legacy of Expo 2020 Dubai, has announced that one of its major attractions, Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion, will be temporarily closed until the end of May for “routine maintenance”.

It is designed by UK-based Grimshaw Architects and is meant to meet the highest available accreditation for sustainable architecture – LEED Platinum certification.

The pavilion invites visitors to embark on a journey for our planet and our shared future, exploring humankind’s relationship with nature, our obsession with excessive consumerism, and how we can change our everyday choices to reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact.

It also demonstrates real-life solutions to real world problems, such as smart use of water, solar energy, and lots of its, and new paths of sustainability.
