A blanket of northern snow over the Dubai desert
Sharing future happiness
The breathtaking lakes and forests of Finland are famous for their beautiful coats of pure snow, and for Expo 2020, the Scandinavian land has added its wintry colours to the Dubai desert. Blending Middle Eastern tradition with Nordic flair, the Finland Pavilion casts a white blanket of snow over a Bedouin-inspired tent, all with a warm heart within. Inside, beyond the pavilion’s striking “snow cape”, you’ll explore a circular storyline of exhibits on Finnish values, from sustainable technologies to the welfare society. But don’t miss the serene central “gorge”, an elegantly designed refuge for peace and reflection.

Blanket of snow
The Finland Pavilion is a large cube-shaped tent designed to look like it’s coated with a blanket of snow. The structure’s outer façade is made of a white fabric that is stretched over a steel framework. The soaring triangular entryway in its centre has been perfectly cut to resemble the pulled-back flaps of an Arabian tent.
