In 714 days EXPO 2020 starts in Dubai.
The international design competition for the design of the Italian Pavilion EXPO 2020 is launched.
The Pavilion will be located in a strategic position, between the Pavilion of the United Arab Emirates, which has always been a regular destination for any visitor, and the North Park, one of the main green spaces of the entire exhibition area.
The central concept of the Italy Expo 2020 Pavilion will be «Beauty connects people«: beauty as an element of connection between people, but also as an expression of creative genius and cultural richness. Without forgetting innovation and digital, in line with the Expo 2020 theme «Connecting minds, creating the future». The entire Pavilion should be a great showcase for expressing Italy’s innovative and creative potential, especially in the eyes of countries in the Me.Na.Sa area (Middle East, North Africa, South Asia), considered a region rich in opportunities for the Italian economic system.
As can be seen from Art. 8 of the Tender Rules:
The Winner of the Competition for the ITALY EXPO 2020 Pavilion will receive a prize of Euro 190,000.00 (one hundred and ninety thousand/00), net of VAT and all other legal charges. The second and third place winners of the Competition will be paid, as a mere reimbursement for the costs of participation in the Competition itself, respectively, the following amounts: Euro 60,000.00 (sixty thousand/00), plus VAT and all other legal charges, and Euro 40,000.00 (forty thousand/00), net of VAT and all other legal charges.
B1P Group is already working on another Expo Pavilion, offering BIM modeling services to align with the Expo 2020 requirements for design delivery and BIM model for the Concept Design and Detail Design phase.
