A large wheel forms the central axle of the pavilion, around which the five linked exhibition spaces revolve. The water that falls on it like a waterfall triggers a double conveyor belt structure through which the trays move, in a circuit that represents the different phases of the postal company's mail management. At the entrance to the pavilion, visitors are given a barcode with which they can use a machine that allows them to track an item from its receipt to its final delivery. All this equipment is surrounded by an artificial forest of trees, where messages can be inserted into the trunks and games can be played. This is where La Poste shows how it contributes to sustainable development. The 'green line' (environmentally friendly packaging, envelopes and boxes) contributes to the recovery and preservation of forests. The 'donate your mobile phone' campaign with which it collaborates through the reuse and recycling of mobile phones to improve the environment or the electric bicycles on display which are already being used by postmen in historic centres and pedestrian streets.
