Saudi Arabia celebrated the milestone of being among the first countries to complete the construction of its pavilion for Expo 2025 in Osaka. Eng. Othman Al-Muzaiad, accompanied by the Saudi Pavilion delegation, participated in the event held at Expo 2025 Osaka’s official exhibition site on Yumeshima Island. Firas Al-Turki, the Chief Construction Officer overseeing the Kingdom’s pavilion, was also present at the celebration.
The Saudi pavilion, designed to showcase heritage, traditions, and values, serves as a reflection of the Saudi identity and its historical significance as a nurturing ground for ancient civilizations spanning thousands of years.
Moreover, the pavilion emphasizes the ongoing transformation aligned with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, aiming to achieve economic and social objectives while unlocking future capabilities. The construction of the pavilion symbolizes the Kingdom’s commitment to the environment, emphasizing its dedication to sustainable design and a better future.
In its design, the Kingdom’s pavilion draws inspiration from traditional urban formations, presenting a representation of Saudi Arabia’s history, culture, and heritage.
The design is both distinctive and sustainable, showcasing the Kingdom’s commitment to a shared future and incorporating cutting-edge sustainability technologies. These features include the use of renewable materials and a reconfigurable structure to minimize environmental impact. The Saudi Pavilion achieved zero operational emissions by following Japan’s highest level of urban environmental efficiency standards. Low-carbon materials, energy-saving technology, rainwater recycling, and solar power enabled this achievement. Moreover, the design can be easily dismantled and reassembled in the future. Following the Saudi Cultural Dinner in Osaka, a celebration took place attended by government delegations from Saudi Arabia and Japan, along with officials from other participating countries in Expo 2025 in Osaka.
