Info: 900 sqm roof in cushion-printed and single-layer ETFE
The Azerbaijan pavilion for Expo 2020 Dubai is a structural and an aesthetic challenge as well. The roof consists of 3 different areas. The largest surface, of about 700 square meters, is mado of a double-layer ETFE cushion in which the external layer is white colored and the external one is digitally printed with the image of a huge leaf. The other two roofs, of 120 and 70 square meters respectively, are single layer, white ETFE. The result is a highly translucent surface that is perfect for backlighting. Maco Technology, on behalf of the designers, has the task of engineering the system, its production and assembly on site for the opening of Expo 2020.
