Competition “Expo Dubai 2020” – 3rd prize.
In the context of heated climate change debates – our design proposal Manifesto for Expo Dubai 2020 Lithuanian pavilion (3rd prize)
Technological innovations will not solve climate change! We have to change our mindsets first and stay away from global or local design trends that are short lived, ephemeral and have devastating consequences.
In this work we suggested our country to make a statement against the glamorous showing off trends of the World Expo events. The pavilion is designed to be built entirely from scaffolding, formwork, recycled fabric, shipping containers and solar panels – all can be rented locally just for the duration of the event. No waste, no transportation. Greta, we hear you!
