The Mongolian exhibition aims to be a walk through a space dedicated to the past, present and future sensibility of understanding water, its uses and its conservation. This journey is developed through specific contents and an avant-garde design especially related to water resources. The Mongolian pavilion is divided into four main areas. The first, occupying the central space, is highly visual. Here the visitor can contemplate two reproductions: one of the Gobi desert and the other of a mountainous area, while at its feet there is an illuminated photograph of a river course in the territory. Behind these models there are two large plasma screens on which documentaries about Mongolia are projected. The next thematic frame is a 60-centimetre platform on which a sample of interesting Mongolian architecture is highlighted. On either side, two other screens show selected videos. The third and final thematic area is located on the longer sides of the enclosure. In the latter, there are various illuminated panels and a series of display cases on which different pieces of the country are exhibited.
