The pillars supporting the roof of the gas pavilion on Bouvelard 21 were doubled like the natural gas flares.

In the centre of the pavilion was a "gas dial" clock.

Under the sawtooth roof were displays on the use of natural gas in 1962 and in the future in 2001.

A didactic exhibition explained the sources, processes, products and production of gas from ancient times to the present.

The circular clock, which was located on the ceiling, indicated the passing of time by the number of burning torches, so for every full hour a torch was lit.

91 gas companies sponsored this pavilion.
