Topping-Out Ceremony for the German Pavilion at Expo 2020
The topping-out ceremony for the German Pavilion at the Expo site in Dubai took place today. Traditionally, the topping-out ceremony is celebrated when the shell of a building is completed and the roof is put up. Our work continues at full speed!
At Expo 2020 in Dubai, Germany will present itself as a research laboratory in which people can find out about and experience solutions for a sustainable future together and by exchanging ideas. Visitors to CAMPUS GERMANY can look forward to an adventurous trip filled with surprises and insights.
