The Poem Pavilion

What if the UK Pavilion at Expo 2020 becomes a place where visitors from all over the world take part in a collective global project that showcases British expertise in A.I. technologies and poetry while transcending national identities?
– Es Devlin

Atelier Ten are over the moon to be on the winning team for the UK Pavilion at the Expo 2020 in Dubai. Led by Es Devlin, the concept for the “Poem Pavilion” asks visitors to consider what message they would communicate to express the planet to civilisations in outer space.
