The Lightness of Being

Malaysia Pavilion Expo 2020 Dubai


For KLAF, Serina presents the Malaysia Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai by Hijjas Architects, an eloquent vision in timber designed with net zero carbon in mind. The client (Malaysia Green Technology and Climate Change Centre) had in the competition pursued the core theme of energising sustainability. From there, Serina and her team created a narrative of a canopy of trees.

The pavilion is a Malaysian expression of the best the country can do and the country aspires to. The structure was designed on slender pilotis among a landscape of planting, palms and light pole groves, creating a floating effect that ties to its rainforest canopy concept.
