A deeply human journey from desert to global metropolis
Not long ago, the majority of what is now modern Dubai was desert. Today, that land is home to a global capital of skyscrapers and world-class sustainable infrastructure. What caused this transformation? The powerful vision to see a thriving multicultural hub. The Vision Pavilion at Expo 2020 celebrates the insight, values, and leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai. Across three galleries filled with captivating exhibits, the pavilion explores His Highness’s personal story and celebrates the Emirati people and culture of Dubai.

The Vision Pavilion’s dramatic exterior features a mosaic façade that displays an artistic decorative pattern of sandstone and panels of foamed and flat aluminium, reminiscent of the UAE coastline, as well as the intersection of desert, sea and creeks.
