Designed by visionary architect Royal Pineda, the Philippines Pavilion at the 2020 Expo in Dubai is a free-flowing showcase of the 4,000-year journey and history of the Filipino people.

Design history of the Filipino people

“Bangkóta is a living coral reef, pulsating with people, movement, activities, flora and water features, all functioning as one global ecosystem.”

Tapping into his own design philosophy of ‘nature is peace’, Royal took inspiration from the fact that coral reefs spread and thrive across the oceans, just as how Filipinos thrive across the world. At its core, the Philippines Pavilion is a monument to the creativity and compassion of the Filipino, as well as their unique bayanihan spirit.

The Bangkota will open in Dubai on October 20, 2020.
