OOS Studio, a Zurich-based architecture firm, used a giant mirror to cover the front of the Swiss Pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020. The Pavilion is called Reflections and is set alongside a giant red carpet, reflecting the mirrored structure. The Swiss Pavilion aims to encouraged visitors to think about Switzerland.
To complete the project, OOS collaborated with scenography designer Bellprat Partner and landscape architect Lorenz Eugster. It is simple in shape, boasting a cube design, yet is brought to life by its mirrored facade, which includes a funnel-shaped indentation. The installation hopes to connect its visitors through the mirroring effect as they ponder their self-images and that of other guests. Inside, a fog-filled room leads to a mountain top view.
