Thinc is designing the visitor experience for the Sustainability Pavilion, one of the host nation’s signature theme pavilions at the Expo2020 in Dubai.  Working in collaboration with Grimshaw Architects and content partner Eden Project, we are creating an experience that inspires each and every visitor with humanity’s potential for transformation. By creating spectacular physical and digital environments, we reinterpret the systems of Earth and human life and push the boundaries of how to communicate science to the general public. Following Expo2020, the Pavilion will become a permanent museum.

A capital transformation project funded by the Prince’s Regeneration Trust, our work at Middleport Pottery was to allow the characterful atmosphere of the Victorian pottery to remain intact while enhancing operations for the ceramists and opening the factory to welcome more visitors. As the only surviving Victorian ceramics factory in the Potteries, Middleport is vital not only to the history of this great British export, but also to the life and well-being of the communities that have worked the clay for generations.
