Presenting Sri Lanka
The Pearl of the Indian Ocean; renowned across the globe for its treasures of heritage, culture, people and nature, proudly carries a history of over 2500 years. Today, it is a nation on the cusp of reaching its absolute potential, a nation banking on her younger generation to effortlessly elevate her into a future of promise and prosperity, a nation wanting to retain, learn from and build on its past, a nation adapting to the evolution of times, with her sights set on the horizon of a better tomorrow.
In reflection of that promise, the pavilion for Sri Lanka seeks to narrate that undeniable truth by pushing forth the island as a prime destination in a global context. Treading on a harmonic water-based theme designed by an exemplary team from the University of Moratuwa, the pavilion has been recognized as a front-runner in design at the Expo2020 in Dubai. Showcasing a hydraulic civilization through the perspective of tourism, the concept revolves around the three key pillars of Authenticity, Compactness and Diversity; using that as medium to take visitors on a journey through its history, culture, nature, people, and countless other facets by weaving a story that’s set on not just showcasing a destination, but inspiring a world.
