Austria EXPO 2020 Dubai
Far from home and the cliché
Once again, Austria is doing everything in its architecture (as it did in Shanghai) to escape the common clichés of traditional costume and alpine romance.
The Austrian pavilion consists of a network of 38 intersecting cones.
The design is said to be reminiscent of the wind towers of the Arab world.
They are among the most unusual constructions and are eye-catchers and highlights of EXPO 2020 Dubai.
They were inspired by Arabic mud architecture and the usual air-conditioning technology was almost completely dispensed with.
In this way, the cavernous spaces under the cones are pleasantly cooled without the need for much energy.
According to the architectural firm Querkraft, the concept is aimed at "mindful and respectful use of our earthly resources."
Inside, as you walk through the pavilion, you discover cave paintings that are meant to represent a connection between Austria and the host country.
