LATVIAN PAVILION FOR EXPO DUBAI 2020
SMART, SOUNDING FOREST
Joins minds to create a more humane future
Location: Dubai, UAE
Project Status: Competition Finalists (1st Phase 1st Prize)
The Latvian pavilion is a sounding smart forest, which leads visitors to its picturesque world of Latvian nature, culture, and technologies and “speaks” to them through sound and experience. It challenges visitors to take part in the creation of the sound of the shared, innovative and humane world of the future. The Latvian pavilion is an instrument – the landscape of Latvian sound and identity, equipped with artificial intelligent. As soon as a visitor makes a sound, the forest responds. The interaction of the forest and the human can also take place via a specially created application on the smartphone.
The path of the exposition leads through stories about Latvian nature, culture, technologies, infrastructure and innovations. The forest invites the visitor on a journey from primary values to technologies of the future – from the floor of the forest to the tops of the trees. The exposition is available in a physical, expanded, and virtual form.
