Al Wasl Plaza in Expo City Secures Guinness World Record

Dubai, known for its architectural marvels, has yet another feather in its cap as Al Wasl Plaza in Expo City clinches a Guinness World Record, further solidifying the city’s reputation for global excellence.

The prestigious title of the “largest interactive immersive dome” now belongs to Expo City’s crown jewel, Al Wasl Plaza, as officially recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Alwaleed Osman, the Official Adjudicator at Guinness World Records, expressed, “Al Wasl Plaza stands as a testament to architectural excellence and a distinguished structure that resonates with those who have had the privilege of experiencing it. Its recognition in Guinness World Records underscores the commitment of Expo 2020, and the subsequent Expo City Dubai, to innovation and excellence.”

Boasting a remarkable 130-meter diameter and a soaring height of 67 meters, Al Wasl Plaza is of such scale that it could comfortably house the Leaning Tower of Pisa underneath its impressive structure. Visitors are treated to a unique experience with immersive 360-degree videos projected onto the dome’s surface.

What sets Al Wasl Plaza apart is its cutting-edge technology, featuring up to 252 laser projectors that allow images to be viewed both inside and outside the dome. Crafted by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the plaza’s design draws inspiration from the emblem of the Expo 2020 exhibition, visible at the dome’s summit.

Constructed with distinctive materials enabling year-round use, Al Wasl Plaza served as a central hub for activities during Expo 2020 Dubai and is set to host the UNTOLD music festival in the coming year.

In celebration of its latest achievement, Al Wasl Plaza unveiled the Al Wasl Plaza Café, an exciting addition offering Arabic fusion cuisine. This local brand complements the plaza’s daily projection shows, making it an ideal spot for visitors to indulge in both visual and culinary delights.

The Guinness World Record not only cements Al Wasl Plaza’s place in history but also underscores Dubai’s ongoing commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation and architectural brilliance.
