Innovating for a shared future

The UK Pavilion will celebrate the best of the UK’s creativity and culture, sparking ideas and inspiration about how we might all live in the future.

Underneath our theme of Innovating for a shared future there will be plenty to surprise and inspire visitors of all ages. Prepare to stimulate your senses, from the immersive Soundscape of our Choral Space to the taste and aroma of the very best of UK food and drink in our restaurant and bar, 1851.

A message to the universe

If you could send a message to an extraterrestrial civilisation across the depths of space, what would you say?

Add your voice to a continuously changing visitor message and get an awe-inspiring glimpse into the future, exploring everything from the commercialisation of space to artificial intelligence (AI).

At the UK Pavilion you will add your own word to a Collective Message from humanity to the universe, with a little help from our specially developed AI. Every visitor will leave with their own unique couplet composed by the UK’s poetry AI.

An interactive journeY

Your visit begins in our Maze of Aspiration, where you’ll be guided through the story of the UK’s latest innovations in AI and space while exploring some of our pioneering ideas and projects with augmented reality bringing it to life in front of your eyes.

Next, enter our immersive Choral Space where you will be surrounded by music, voices and sounds collected from around the world.

Finally, donate a single word of your choosing to our Collective Message. When you leave the UK Pavilion you will see your donated word displayed in a unique couplet of poetry on the building’s façade as part of the AI-generated message to outer-space from humanity.
