The project of the Valencian Community pavilion is based on the idea of a directed but natural itinerary, in the same way as the water of a river that comfortably follows its course. Visitors feel guided as they pass by architectural forms with organic guidelines, translucent and transparent textures, reminiscent of the reflections of water. Keeping the 'discovery' alive throughout the visit. The presence of water in the pavilion evokes this river journey with three zones: 1) The space of springs, pools, fountains, with a more illustrious presence of water... Past. 2 - The space of the middle river basin: the passage from the mountains to the flood plains: the diversions and water intakes, the origin of irrigation... Present. 3. The space of river plains, mouths and beaches, ponds, ullals, estanys, saltworks, marshes, lagoons and all the wetlands of the coast. Semi-aridity and biological, cultural and landscape wealth... Future.
