The Masterplan for the Expo 2020 bid was prepared between January and September 2012, and was achieved through the successful coordination and interaction between many different parties and interests.

Chris was responsible for delivering 5 chapters of the bid book managing a broad team of internal and external experts, all of them world-class thought leaders in their own disciplines. The chapters included;

  • The Expo Site and Masterplan
  • Pavilion Design and Guidelines
  • Sustainability
  • Health & Medical Provision
  • Security

The objective was to produce an aspirational masterplan that reflected the proud character and culture of the U.A.E., Dubai and its people, as well as the B.I.E.’s key principles of an Expo; cooperation, education and innovation.

With these aims in mind, we planned the Masterplan from the end to the beginning – to leave a sustainable positive legacy for future generations of Emiratis to look back on with a sense of pride, not only of hosting the first “mega event” to take place in the Middle East, but one that represented a key stepping stone in the historic growth of a young but vibrant country.

As with all Expo’s, the Masterplan is representative of the key Expo 2020 Dubai theme, Connecting Minds, Creating the Future, as well as the sub-themes of Mobility, Sustainability and Opportunity.
