Finland’s Expo 2020 Dubai pavilion, Snow Cape, will be served by KONE elevators and sliding doors, according to a press release about the 1,867-m2 exhibit topping out in February. The design by JKMM Architects blends the cultures of Finland and the U.A.E. with interiors inspired by Finland’s icy landscapes and a floor-to-ceiling main entrance bringing to mind a traditional Arabic tent. Severi Keinälä, commissioner general of Finland at Expo 2020, said the national values of “happiness, a circular economy and innovations” will take center stage at the pavilion, scheduled for completion this summer. Up to 85% of the materials, including the KONE equipment used to build Snow Cape, will be recycled and repurposed after the expo.
