The Philippines’ modern setting and Filipinos’ innovative mindset will be on showcase at the world gathering of Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Philippine pavilion is located in the Sustainability area of the Expo 2020 site, designed to be a multi-tiered pavilion on a 3,000-square meter area made to look like a “living coral reef” housing gardens, a plaza, viewing decks, among other amenities.

The theme of the Philippine Pavilion’s design was revealed by Royal Pineda of Budgi+Royal Architecture and Design, the architectural firm known for creating Filipino-themed designs.

“We don’t want it to be a museum… What we want to show is the mindset of Filipinos today,” Pineda said in a closed door presentation reported by Expat Media.

“The idea is to announce to the world that we are now people of innovation,” shared Pineda, CEO of the firm that also designed the interior of the world’s first resort airport terminal in Cebu.

The country’s participation in the first World Expo ever hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region was confirmed to media in May after the signing of Administrative Order 17 constituting the Philippine Organizing Committee (POC) for the Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary was tasked to chair the committee. The Commissioner-General of the POC and the Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary will serve as vice chairpersons.

The idea for the Philippines’ presentation was to bring the country’s natural beauty, historical attractions, and innovations to the world stage.

“We want people to leave this pavilion with a question ‘Where did I really come from as a Filipino?’,” announced Budi+Royal’s chief architect.

The Philippine Pavilion and the exhibitions of 191 countries at the Expo 2020 Dubai will be accessible to the 25 million visitors expected to participate in the world exposition.
