The Viennese architecture office querkraft prevailed its design for the Austrian Pavilion for the EXPO 2020 in Dubai. The bold design combines traditional building materials with modern techniques and presents Austria as a center of innovation in the heart of Europe. 


The Expo in Dubai from October 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021, with its main topic of "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" is the first world exhibition in an Arab country in the 170-­year Expo history. In a time where huge amounts of information create misleading answers for complex issues, the Austrian Pavilion focuses on the framework of innovations. Instead of giving answers, it concentrates on asking questions. The Austrian Pavilion provides the necessary space to engage in the dialogue about essential topics for a better world and a more empathic life together. 


The Austrian Pavilion focuses on the question: "How can the given ressources be used more thoughtful and respectful in the future?“ 


Natural materials convey comfort. The grid of truncated cones unfolds playful asthetics of light and shadow. The carefully engineered arcs invite the visitor to rest and contemplate during the hectic of the surrounding exhibition. the pavillon contributes a holistic austrian standpoint about our world ressources. It offers a interdisciplinary approach with innovative solutions.
