Chile's new proposals for the world today.

Its privileged geography, its enormous natural wealth, its recently regained democracy, the vigour and modernity of its economy and the talent and ability of its people have made Chile a nation full of attractive possibilities.

The sensations of Chile bewitch the visitor.

The sounds of Chile, the quality of the wood, the images of life in the southernmost part of the world, and a surprising market that displayed the merits of Chile in objects, added to the striking magic of an enormous installation containing ice from Antarctica, a resounding appeal to the ecological conscience of humanity.

New trends in architecture.

The pavilion, made of wood and copper, was a great architectural work that proposed a new trend in the use of appropriate technologies and natural materials. The economy of its forms and its simple and beautiful lines opened up a vast interior space that mitigated the Sevillian sun and shaded the light.
