Expo2020: Canada Pavilion

With the concept of finding our common ground through storytelling at the core of Canada’s participation in the Expo 2020 Dubai, it should comes as no surprise that an amphitheater is at the heart of the Toronto – based Moriyama & Teshima Architects’ scheme. Designed as a drum, a musical instrument found across cultures, and often used to bring together a crowd to witness an important axpression of Canada’s landscape, this bold visual gesture is also billed as an interpretation of Arabic masharbiya screens.
