The UK Pavilion:


UK firms McLaren Construction and branding agency Pico Group are to build the UK’s pavilion which is a 3,417 sqm, two-level structure. The development will feature a 20m-tall cone made from protruding slats across multiple rows to create a jutted circular facade. The building will be made from cross-laminated timber on a concrete structure and will make use of off-site manufacturing.

This structure is hopefully going to represent the UK in a good light and present the best of British creativity, innovation and expertise! The UK in an established nation with a deep, long history, we have a determined construction workforce, that will be working on such an important and exciting project.
