About Terra – the Sustainability Pavilion

Terra, which means ‘Planet Earth’, is designed to offer an “immersive journey through the wonders of the natural world”.  When you visit Terra, you’ll have the chance to explore the cutting-edge pavilion by Grimshaw Architects, which is net-zero for both energy and water.

Take a walk through the roots of the forest, where every footstep affects the ‘wood-wide web’. This educational experience will also teach you about the importance of making sustainable choices, encouraging better habits for all ages. The public spaces include a children’s playground, dining, gift shop and more.

Expo 2020 Pavilions Premiere, Jan 22 to Apr 10, Dhs25 per person, Tue to Thu 3pm to 9pm, Fri and Sat 4pm to 10pm.
