Terra 360

Discover Terra in 360°

A modelof harmonious living

Terra is a super-sized marvel of forward-thinking design. The pavilion’s technology generates enough energy in a year to power a Nissan Leaf to drive halfway to Mars, while another system captures moisture from the air you breathe and turns it into drinkable water. Enter and take a fantastical journey through the wonders of nature, humanity’s challenges and the promise of our shared future.

Terra Art Installations

Terra is home to five thought-provoking art installations from artists around the world, with each piece demonstrating a response to the issue of sustainability.

Octavia's Playground

Young visitors can explore a fantastical world inspired by Terra's very own octopus, Octavia.

Terra offers two different, immersive tracks that take visitors either Under the Forest or Under the Ocean in order to learn more about the beauty of the natural world.
