UK Dubai Pavilion competition | Living watercolour.
Designer : Paul Cocksedge
Engineer : IDOM
British designer Paul Cocksedge's ‘impossible’ living watercolour design was selected as a finalist for the UK National Pavilion during Expo 2020 in Dubai.
The creation of these images presented several technical challenges, the creation of the 3D for the discs themselves and also their colouration, taking into consideration how the discs create new colours when they are overlaid.
Every colour in the pavilion comes from the flag of a nation exhibiting at the event, expressing unity, partnership and possibility. The overlapping shades reflect the theme of the Expo – Connecting Minds, Creating The Future.
