The Universal Exposition 2020 or Expo 2020 will take place in Dubai from October 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021. Focus on the pavilions of a few countries.

The theme for Expo 2020 will be "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future". The country pavilions will be divided into the "Sustainability", "Mobility" or "Opportunity" districts and will have to associate the architecture of their project with them.



The Pavilion will aim to reflect "a French way of life, with all that it evokes, from gastronomy to science, fashion and culture" according to architect Jacob Celnikier. Visitors will await their passage inside the building in a 1160 m2 garden planted in four French-style squares.
