Sustainability Pavilion – Grimshaw Architects
It comes as no surprise that the winner of the sustainability pavilion for Expo 2020 is the British firm Grimshaw Architects. Nicholas Grimshaw, who founded his firm back in 1985 currently has seven different offices worldwide, among those one in Dubai. Grimshaw has always been at the forefront in the field of sustainable architecture, renewable energies and environmentally friendly technologies. A design competition was launched by Emaar Properties on behalf of Expo 2020 in July 2015 for the realization of the three main theme pavilions: mobility, sustainability, opportunity won respectively by Foster and Partners, Grimshaw Architects, and BIG.
