Almost 70% of the Dutch pavilion is already in place! The raw construction is now almost complete. This forms an important part of the building, on view to all visitors during Expo 2020. The sheet piles and pipes, visible from the outside, demonstrate Dutch strength in civil engineering. In order to minimise our ecological footprint, we have chosen to use predominantly locally available building and construction materials. Did you know that 80% of our building materials are locally sourced and that the remaining 20% are bio-based? This means that all materials can either be reused or recycled after the Expo.
