Architect(s) : Malaussena et Villamueva

The general appearance of the building was a harmonization of the Spanish construction with its red tile roofs and the indigenous buildings covered with thatch.

The pavilion was arranged around a large patio, as seen in all Venezuelan houses.

The first section consisted of the entire subsoil exploration and exploitation industry; Venezuela was the largest exporter of oil in the world.

On the walls were aerial photographs of oil fields and some gold fields.

The second section showed the products of the soil and, along with samples, there was detailed documentation on coffee and cocoa, as well as on wood and herbal medicine.
