Switzerland starts work on Dubai Expo 2020 country pavilion

13-06-2019

The Swiss government has broken ground on its country pavilion, 'Belles Vues', for the upcoming Dubai Expo 2020 event. The project has been designed by Zurich-based architects OOS in collaboration with Bellprat Partner and Lorenz Eugster.

The ground-breaking ceremony was held in the presence of an official delegation led by Markus Seiler, secretary general of Swiss Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

'Belles Vues' makes a bold architectural statement from the outside. From the inside too, it offers a one-of-a-kind experience by inviting visitors to go on a hike – a typically Swiss activity: as they pass through the pavilion, they not only experience the beautiful Swiss landscape but learn more about Switzerland as a country proud of its traditions but at the same time highly innovative.

In addition, the pavilion will host a number of temporary exhibitions that turn the spotlight on Swiss innovation and the products and services of private-sector partners and the Swiss tourism sector to promote the country’s economic capacity and attractiveness as a tourist destination to the UAE - Switzerland’s foremost trading partner in the Middle East.
