The official opening of the @expo2020dubai is quickly approaching… (1 Oct)
.
We look forward to having visitors on the canopy walk that meanders through the Pavilion.
.
The Pavilion is located in the Sustainability District of the Expo and brings an oasis of lush trees, verdant shrubs and vibrant orchids to the desert.
.
Sheltered by a solar canopy, it operates entirely on solar energy and will maintain a net-zero energy footprint over its operation period.
.
We use passive strategies like sun-shading, natural cross-ventilation and planting to create a comfortable and cool climate.

@saladlandscape: “Two extremes of natural terrain- one with a minimum and the other with the greatest possible amount of vegetation.” - Paul Bowles, the two landscapes that have stimulated the American writer- the desert & the tropic where his writings always based on.

The hot stuffy desert made us think of how the Bedouin move in the vast sand dunes without any guidance besides the red fire ball rising and setting down; besides the stars in the night. Even in the night, it is not a respite. The endless sand dunes are, to us, a lost, non-directional, nothing to refer, but struggle between self & environment; a labyrinth.

In the other pendulum side of our homeland - the tropics is not a peaceful place too. The rainforest does not allow a waste in any niche, everything is compressed. Being within, to us, is a constant encountering with other lives. We too lost in the imploded space where we question more and more to ourselves, trying to form a resonance and connection with other lives.

Same with Paul Bowles’ search of himself in these two polarities, a sponge-like oasis erected in this vast sand land, concocts a collision of two labyrinths in both outermost & innermost environment.

We love this @time cover by @baxmaps so much we had to repost it. Can you spot @parkroyalpickering representing #singapore?

@time: The challenges of the past year and a half have transformed our world, and few industries have been as affected as travel, tourism and hospitality. In many ways, our third annual list of the World's Greatest Places is a tribute to the people and businesses at the forefront of those industries who, amid extraordinary circumstances, found ways to adapt, build and innovate. It shines a light on ingenuity, creativity, revitalization and reopenings in 100 unique destinations across the world. While it may not be possible to safely visit each place just yet, they’re all well worth reading (and dreaming) about until it's time, once again, to explore.
