Giant, vivid and spectacular images will greet visitors to the Mexico pavilion, one of the largest at the Expo with a surface area of 1,053 square metres distributed over two levels. The exhibition presented by Mexico will explain the concept of water in this country and the importance of this resource for life and sustainable development.
Mexico's proposal for the Expo is one of the most avant-garde architectural projects ever presented at international events. The Mexican pavilion is organised around four distinct environments. First, visitors will discover the richness of the Mexican water landscape through striking images. Then, a reflection on the responsible use of water is proposed. A third space exposes the special relationship that man has with this natural resource to which everything is intimately linked. A playful and interactive installation invites visitors to break down the myths surrounding the theme of water. Finally, the last section encourages the public to become bearers of the message 'We are water'. The various areas of the pavilion describe various aspects of the country's culture and offer a glimpse of its culinary wealth in its gastronomic restaurant.
