Dutch consortium to build mushroom-growing Expo 2020 Dubai pavilion

The Dutch Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will grow mushrooms and create artificial rain. Construction work on the climate-generating Dutch Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will start in May 2019, the project's main contractor said.

Expomobilia's director of pavilion projects, Roger Kornmayer, told Construction Week that a building permit could be obtained in April, paving the way for the $22.1 million project to kick off: “We are working on the detailed design right now and we aim to have a building permit by the end of April, so we will see construction going forwards in May.”

The Dutch Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will be built by a consortium of builders and architects from the Netherlands, including Expomobilia, V8 Architects, Kossmann.dejong, and Witteveen+Bos.

The centrepiece will be a biotope that produces water, renewable energy, and organic mushrooms. It will harvest carbon dioxide to purify the air, and its circular climate system will create artificial rain to grow mushrooms.
