The Murcia pavilion is part of the group of pavilions of the communities of the Mediterranean coast. It is conceived as a single exhibition space, with a fluid path and free circulation, where the importance of water in this community is exposed. Inside, geometric profiles dominate, but without elements that could interrupt the passage of visitors. Its organisation is reminiscent of a "disordered order" such as that created by the atoms in a molecule, the pixels in a photograph, the soap bubbles or, precisely, the drops of water. The content of the exhibition is alternated with information areas and restricted maintenance areas, literally fitted into glass spheres framed in a metal substructure, of smaller or larger radius. The glass of the sphere incorporates different images of Murcia, which, together with the play of light, give character to the pavilion from the very beginning of the visit. The restaurant offers a varied and succulent range of Murcian gastronomy so that the visitor is charmed by the products of its famous market garden.
