Oman Pavilion

Restricted Competition, Milano EXPO 2015

The Sultanate of Oman signed the participation contract of Expo Milano 2015, the next Universal Exposition, to be held in Milan, Italy, from May 1st to October 31st 2015, and which will focus on the theme “Feeding the planet, energy for life”.
For this purpose, Oman has reserved a space of 2,790 m2 and its pavilion will be built in a strategic position within the exhibition site, in front of one of the main entrances of the Expo venue. Now, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Sultanate of Oman invited specialized companies for competition to bid for the project of Designing, Constructing, Furnishing, Outfitting, Demolishing, Removing and Disposing the Materials of Sultanate of Oman Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015. The joint venture of companies and designers has been purposely assembled for tendering for the Oman Pavilion at Expo Milan 2015, with the aim of creating a unique offer in terms of skills, know how, knowledge and creativity. The lot dedicated to the Omani Pavilion is located in proximity to the secondary entrance which is easily reachable from the parking lot located on the east side of the Expo. The Omani Pavilion’s location has many advantageous aspects: the lot has the good fortune not to have neighbors lots on both sides and is adjoining with a green area with trees.
