The World’s Fair has been a way of telling a story through architecture, planning and experience. More than a century-and-a-half of World Expos have displayed life-changing inventions and cultural treasures. The first World Expo, held in 1851 at the Crystal Palace in London, exhibited what a world that embraced science and technology could look like. A record 192 countries are represented at the world’s fair in Dubai as compared to 139 at the previous World Expo in Milan. Every participating country will have its own pavilion for the first time and one can view the expo virtually as well from the comfort of their homes.
