A pavilion designed to inspire connections. The New Zealand Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will explore the theme 'Care for People and Place'.
Explore the strands that connect all life, and the oneness of people and the environment.
The New Zealand Pavilion’s theme reflects the Maori value of ""kaitiakitanga"", which emphasizes the deep kinship between people and the environment.
The island nation’s indigenous culture is also highlighted through the pavilion's architecture, with a design that illustrates ""waka taonga"", the Maori tradition of using handcrafted containers to safeguard valuable items. In this spirit, the pavilion serves as a receptacle for New Zealand’s essential values.
