At the corner of the Atomium and Passerelle avenues, you would find the Brabant province pavilion. The trees of the forest park provided a pleasant green background.
You entered the pavilion through a large circular hall into which the conference and exhibition rooms opened.
The reception room was reserved for Brabant tourism.
A 30-metre long colour diorama by the painter Jean Dratz showed you all the monuments and sites of the main towns in the province.
At the foot of this diorama, a luminous map highlighted all the architectural beauties and the main sites of Brabant.
The first floor, which was accessed by three staircases that started in the central hall, was a single, vast rotunda whose perspective was only interrupted by an impluvium.
This was where the main part of the exhibition was permanently held, with the theme: "Technology in the service of man".
Twelve double-sided panels presented the many activities of the province.
On the first floor, a terrace allowed you to take part in the hectic life of this part of the Exhibition, without being involved in it. The view of the gardens, decorated with an open-air sculpture exhibition, offered you a pleasant relaxation.
