Pavilion's design and exhibitions will showcase the country as a regional hub of technology and digital innovations
Thailand will showcase the transformation of its unique charm into the smart country of Thailand 4.0 through its pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, it has been revealed.
The pavilion’s design and exhibitions will showcase the country as a regional hub of technology and digital innovations, as well as highlighting the ‘Thai DNA’ of thoughtfulness and smiles through its Miracle of Smiles feature.
At Expo 2020, the Thailand Pavilion’s Mobility for the Future theme will promote the country’s lifestyle and business opportunities.
The Thailand Pavilion is inspired by the flower garland, which is the symbol of warm hospitality, luck and respect that Thai people typically use to welcome their guests.
Each of the blossoms on the outside of the pavilion are weaved to embrace all the Expo 2020 visitors, who can engrave Thai flowers that will splendidly bloom in the desert garden. The flowers are also a strong representation of endless mobility from its creation and dispersal of pollen.
The garland logo is modified to represent the digital era and the connecting lines are used to represent mobility and connectivity, while the Thailand Pavilion’s building will showcase a curtain of flowers, formed by weaving them together using traditional, hand-crafted wisdom.
The pavilion design also brings out prominent features of Thai architecture, such as the gabled hall, which embodies the Thai gesture of greeting (Wai).
The pavilion will be located in Expo 2020’s Mobility Thematic District, with a large plot size of 3,606 square metres.
