Returning to nature
The construction methods are designed to return as many of the pavilion's materials as possible to nature at the end of the Expo.
The design of the pavilion was inspired by the well-known 'pigeon towers' of the country. These towers originally provided a resting place in the desert for pigeons on migration.
In two of the four towers, exhibitions will be held that tell the story of the pigeons on their migration with modern techniques such as holograms.
