"This period of rapid, unprecedented change has brought with it a pressing need to rethink the way we exist and is further accelerated by a global health crisis that has touched each and every individual on Earth. While 2020 may be remembered as a year that changed us forever, it has also given us a tremendous opportunity to come together as a global society and find answers to our most pressing challenges," she said.

To manage capacity and provide an optimal experience, all visitors are required to make online reservation in advance. Walk-in tickets will not be available. The pavilion will be open from 15:00-21:00 on Tuesdays to Thursdays, and 16:00-22:00 on Fridays and Saturdays, starting on 22 January.
