We were thrilled to be invited to discuss options for the resin bound surfacing requirement for the striking United Arab Emirates Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo which opened in May 2015.
The pavilion, which was designed by Foster + Partners to represent the UAE’s historic settlements, is accessed from a canyon-like space consisting of two undulating high walls, with paths through the pavilion suggesting the narrow streets of an ancient desert city.
