The whole of the Dauphiné pavilion perfectly defined the "climate" of each of the departments: Isère, Drôme and Haute-Alpes.

Large roofs with steep slopes recalled the snow and the altitude of the first two; on the other side, a flat roof inscribed in the rocky wall underlined this junction of Provence and Dauphiné that is the Drôme.

A large part was dedicated to the garden, and a rocky belvedere of alpine nature, decorated with the most beautiful samples of mountain flora, served as a link between the two architectures.

All the activities of the region were represented by the products on display and synthesised by the works of local artists.
