    Inside the Saudi Arabia pavilion, with work done by Adirondack Studios:


  2. Expo 2020 Dubai legacy plans:



    Once the world's fair draws to close on March 31, work will begin on transforming the $8 billion site into a residential and commercial community. It is estimated that about 80 per cent of the structures will remain in some form. District 2020 will become the country's first “15-minute city”, meaning it will be possible to walk or cycle from end to end without the need for a car.

    The UK has already said it will open a hydrogen innovation centre with the UAE on the legacy site. Italy's government said it will run a “renaissance” legacy project at the site to preserve archaeological artefacts and art recovered from war zones.

  3. Various pavilions now close from time to time, and without notice, due to Covid outbreaks among staff. Japan was closed as of recent. Russia, too. There surely will be more.

    Unstable weather conditions in the UAE have forced some pavilions to close due to damage from the heavy rains.

    Organisers at Expo 2020 Dubai are working round the clock to ensure pavilions stay open despite the heavy rain in recent days.

    Several were forced to temporarily close as staff worked to repair damage caused by the downpours.
    Also want to add that in the past couple of weeks especially during the holidays, some pavilions have been forced to shut due to COVID outbreaks amongst the staff.

    Dubai's Expo 2020 said that virus outbreaks among staff may force some parts of the fair to "close temporarily for deep cleaning and sanitization," without elaborating on the scope or the location of the infections.
    I personally haven't been there in a while, waiting for the weather to be better and the cases to mellow down a little bit.
