Architect(s) : Catherine Harrington

The VIP entrance consisted of three parts: the ceremony square, the VIP reception and the pavilion car park.
This pavilion was intended to host VIPs during the exhibition, often for a day.
The blue roof of the pavilion was undulating, referring to the waves of the ocean.

The car park was located behind the building.

So when a VIP arrived, his limousine would drive around the fountain in the ceremonial square, drop the VIP off in front of the pavilion's front door and park in the car park behind the building.

This pavilion was preserved after the exhibition as a public space.
