Luxembourg at Expo 2020 Dubai - a manifesto of circular economy and sustainable development

Seven years of hard work, dedication and creativity. Seven years of exploration, connections and innovation. Luxembourg is proud to host its pavilion under the theme ‘Resourceful Luxembourg’. The shape of the structure sends out a signal that will fashion the world of tomorrow. Its undulating silhouette, based on the idea of the Möbius ribbon, an infinite form, is to represent the principles of a circular economy and sustainable development, symbolizing the openness and dynamism of the country.

It was developed by Luxembourg architectural firm Metaform, whose design was selected after a call for tenders and an open competition.

Expo 2020 is the Universal Exhibition, currently hosted by Dubai from October 1, 2021 to March, 31, 2022. ‘Connecting Minds, Building the Future’ is the main theme of the event, which is divided into three arteries: ‘Opportunity’, ‘Mobility’ and ‘Sustainability’. These themed areas, in which each participating country has built its respective pavilion, are dotted around the central square of Expo 2020.

The Luxembourg pavilion is located in the ‘Opportunity’ district, the third sub-theme which is considered key to coming to terms with the challenges of tomorrow's world. The pavilion paves the way for the Grand Duchy to showcase its assets, diversity, history and innovation as well as its know-how in the fields of ecological transition, connectivity and sustainability.  It aims to provide an unforgettable experience to showcase Luxembourg to the whole world.
