The Pavilion was designed by Rashid Rana. Rana is one of the most brilliant, leading artists in South Asia. He worked on the exterior to make it reflect the vibrant seasons of Pakistan.

This win must be even more special for Rana because he won this after he just bagged Sitara-e-Imtiaz. This pavilion was made with the help of the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP): they engineered the structure. The theme of the structure was “Unit of All That Appears”. The idea was to combine rhombus-shaped aluminum composite panels, with one half in reflective mirror finish and the other printed with UV technology. In this sense, materials were incorporated that break the solidity of the structure and create an optical illusion.

The Hidden Treasures of Pakistan

Pakistan pavilion’s theme was “The Hidden Treasure”. Almost 25 million people from all around the world came to the expo to share ideas and things that take the world forward. Our pavilion is also spread across 2,900sqm.
