Abu Dhabi – A 6-metre-tall Expo 2020 Dubai sculpture has been erected at Masdar City, one of the world’s most sustainable urban developments, in the presence of Dr Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State and Chairman of Masdar; and Dr Ahmad Belhoul, CEO of Masdar.

The WiFi-enabled structure with screens illustrating three of the expo’s themes — sustainability, mobility and opportunity — has been created by Finnish-born artist Kustaa Saksi.

“We’re proud to host at Masdar City the Expo 2020 Dubai sculpture, a symbol of the progress we have made in the UAE and a reminder to continue persevering with our signature spirit of innovation,” said Dr Belhoul. “Masdar’s work to forge local and international partnerships, accelerate sustainable development and provide new employment opportunities and diversified economic growth is a reflection of the expo’s themes.”

Connected to a 4G network, the sculpture provides detailed information about Expo 2020 Dubai’s history, offering visitors an opportunity to learn about outstanding innovations and participating pavilions. Through a separate interactive screen, visitors can get information about topics the expo will explore. More info
