Odesa bids to host the 2030 World Expo with spectacular pavilions

Despite the war, Ukraine is still planning for the future: it has entered the competition for the right to present the 2030 Expo with pavilion designs by Zaha Hadid Architects.


In a resounding success, Odesa has entered the competition for the right to host the 2030 World Expo, with the Expo’s design by one of the world’s most famous architectural firms, Zaha Hadid Architects. They have designed pavilions that can be easily dismantled and transported after the event and reassembled as public buildings anywhere in Ukraine. They want to paint a vision of a future where nothing is wasted. In the spirit of environmental awareness, they are trying to reduce cement use by recycling buildings damaged and demolished during the war. The Expo plans to offer participating nations the opportunity to assemble their pavilions from a building kit with a flexible modular system.

“When you visit Ukraine and our Odesa in 2030, you will feel the power and culture of not just one country and one city… you will feel the potential of all humanity,” shared Volodymyr Zelensky, President of Ukraine, at the announcement of the application.
