North America and Eurasia will be linked together by a representation of the Arctic Pole.
Covering 300 hectares of land, each mini-island will contain ecological samples and indigenous animals of each respective continent. The animal pavilions will be protected by bubbled steel and glass dome caps, each surrounded by lush greenery and foliage.
