Extremadura at the Exhibition Expo Zaragoza 2008

The Extremadura Pavilion offers all the elements necessary to live a great sensory experience through a series of attractive and motivating mechanisms. From a thematic point of view, the visitor will be able to participate in the content directly, travelling, for example, along the rivers that cross the region, the dams and feeling, in the first person, an infinite number of visual, auditory and olfactory sensations... The visitor will not only know Extremadura, but also feel it. From an architectural point of view, the pavilion has a glass facade that recalls the appearance of crystalline water at rest, like the water in the dams. The entrance doors, in turn, resemble suspended drops of water. Within the enclosure, an artificial river stands out between other exhibition areas, constructed in fibreglass, which runs through the pavilion, offering a real vision of the habitat of the currents in Extremadura.
