Government of Mexico - Expo Seattle 1962

Government of Mexico at the Exhibition Expo Seattle 1962
Architect(s) : Paul Thiry

The Mexico pavilion was located on the north side of the International Plaza. The entrance was from the terrace above the DuPen Fountain, or from the side of the Canada pavilion. The government exhibit was one of the many displays at the World's Fair.

In the pavilion, talented artisans from Mexico City worked. They demonstrated their high skills and techniques and also showed the results of their artistic work. Among the craftsmen were tanners who made the leather goods for which Mexico City is famous; glass blowers who created glass balls, vases, and tableware; weavers who made coloured clothes and blankets; potters who worked with clay; and jewellers who worked with gold and silver to make jewellery.
