Malaysia's glorious natural wetlands and the sustainable management of man-made infrastructure are the protagonists of Malaysia's proposal for the international exhibition. Biodiversity, the environment and scientific study are among the topics addressed in their pavilion. The experience begins with the first façade, where a representation of the Malaysian marshes appears. As the public enters the enclosure, a fountain with sound and light welcomes them. This design represents a journey along a tree-lined path through swampy areas. In this way, the visitor can alternately access the information on both the left and right sides of the exhibition. On the left side, the contents related to water, both fresh and salt water, as well as artificial lakes are presented. On the right hand side are the geographical details. In the Putrajava area, the public has the opportunity to consult interactive installations on the fauna and flora of this place. Afterwards, visitors can discover the attractions of this beautiful city through a three-dimensional presentation.
