The news was announced on Twitter: the “Pakistan Pavilion has won the BURJ CEO Award for ‘Best Pavilion Exterior Design”. The Burj CEO is important because these awards recognize business excellence.
More About The Pavilion
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 pavilion of Pakistan consists of a souvenir shop that has art and crafts available for people to see. They can take home Pakistan’s culture in a tiny way back home. Did you know the pavilion also has an official soundtrack composed by Rohail Hyatt? The sound is an amalgamation of four distinct musical styles 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.
We are happy to celebrate the award given by Burj CEO for “Best Pavilion Exterior Design at Dubai Expo”. pic.twitter.com/qJTvKmXnnr
