Eyrise liquid crystal glass will provide solar shading for Campus Germany at Expo 2020 in Dubai, which will take place from October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022.

The dynamic glass specialist was appointed a premium partner by the German Pavilion Expo 2020 Dubai Consortium, and is responsible for the pavilion’s design, planning and implementation.

Expo 2020 Dubai, which was postponed for a year due to the global pandemic, will showcase scientific, technological, economic and social progress from over 190 countries, each with a national pavilion.

Designed by Berlin-based architects Lava, Campus Germany’s focus is on sustainability to align with the event’s central theme: Connecting Minds, Creating the Future. Situated in the Expo’s Sustainability district, the pavilion is built around these principles and features an interactive exhibition on creative sustainable solutions alongside new innovations.

“The German pavilion puts an important spotlight on one of the key issues of our time,” Céline Glipa, CEO at Eyrise, said. “Our instant solar shading glass contributes to this focus on sustainability by creating a comfortable environment for visitors to the exhibition while supporting the building’s energy efficiency ambitions.”

Sixty-one panels of Eyrise liquid crystal glazing were installed at Campus Germany, comprising 28 fixed glass panels, four standard doors and 29 folding doors. The dynamic glass can be tinted to provide instant solar shading without compromising on natural daylight, helping to reduce energy consumption.
