Architect(s) : Couasnon, Penther, Ferré et Liberge

The Pavillon de la Bretagne was built partly on the roof of the state railway, partly on the lower part of the quay.

A decorative column, a real sculpted menhir, marked the main entrance on the Quai d'Orsay.

On each side, a double step gave access to the entrance porch.

The pavilion had three floors:

On the lower floor, at the level of the riverbank, you could taste products from the soil and the sea.

The middle floor was reserved for handicraft production: furniture, embroidery, lace, pottery, basketry;

The upper floor was dedicated to the synthetic presentation of the various branches of Breton activity.
