Visionary Lighthouse

The pavilion's design reflects Kuwait's commitment to strengthening international relations and unites Kuwait's past, present, and future through architectural excellence and its content-rich exhibition. True to the World Expo 2025 theme "Designing Future Society for our Lives," the Lighthouse concept represents Kuwait's role as a visionary beacon of Arab culture, art, and society.

Exceptional Architecture

The pavilion's audacious architecture picks up on Kuwait's characteristic landscape and tradition and uses them as recurring elements throughout the pavilion. The open and inviting architecture with its opening wings symbolizes a welcoming gesture and stands for the country's famous hospitality. The pavilion is bright, and its façade illuminates at night, underlining the theme of the "Visionary Lighthouse".

Visually Stunning Exhibition

In four exhibition rooms, visitors experience a journey through the Gulf state's past, present, and future.
