AGi architects, the design firm led by Joaquín Pérez-Goicoechea MArch ’02 and Nasser B. Abulhasan MArch ’02/DDes ’07, has designed the Mission Possible: The Opportunity Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. This thematic pavilion encapsulates the concept of ‘Opportunity’: the idea that any action we take can create an impact; that anything is possible with a small step. It is conceived as a large plaza, providing continuity to the Opportunity District in which it is situated. The design builds on the rich urban history of the plaza throughout millennia, from Roman times to the modern-day – the concept of a plaza is universal and lends itself to multiple cultures, whether it is a piazza, Saha, common, or the town square. This universal urban language is important because the pavilion aims to be a platform for social and cross-cultural engagement.
