The aim of the Indonesian pavilion is to transport the visitor to the depths of the ocean, to take him or her on a journey where the floor represents the depths and the ceiling symbolises the surface. A small vestibule welcomes visitors with an image simulating a trickle of droplets on the ceiling, which will be the 'leitmotif' of the subsequent tour. Wood and polycarbonate are the protagonists of a space where the glass underlines the play of compositions between the other two elements and the light. The journey through the pavilion is then governed by the light emanating from the vault and the design of the enclosure. It is in fact a dynamic room thanks to the plasma screens, forming a welcoming audiovisual space in which light plays an essential role. The visitor will feel as if he is in an aquarium in which the glass walls are replaced by audiovisual productions. The space remains open to the visitor's free interpretation, due to the irregular and chaotic layout of its structure. Dark tones predominate to give a sense of depth, in contrast to the bright light of the vault: a complete journey from the bottom of the sea to the surface. The central space is equipped with bleachers and seats against the wall to accommodate a second row of spectators.
