The pavilion consists of a transparent construction made of steel, glass and wood - the front is made entirely of glass - is divided into four cube-shaped spaces and surrounded on three sides by an artificial lake.

In the entrance hall of the pavilion there is a divided wooden lattice, typical of Turkish architecture.

From this vantage point, visitors can get an overall view of the building, including the bridge and the exhibition platforms.

The Turkish pavilion "EXPO2000" is a quality exhibition concept, comprising the dimensions of nature and technology, east and west, past and present, and reflecting Turkey in a harmonious diversity oriented towards humanity.

The pavilion is conceived as a conceptual landscape of the intellectual and emotional spirit of Anatolian people.

The Turkish pavilion signifies the peace-based relationship between man and nature, east and west with alternative technology and civilisation towards progress.
