The pavilion is composed of urban space on the ground floor and nature space on the top, where cable cars shuttle between town and country. The entire pavilion represents the interdependent and reciprocal relationship between town and country, and emphasises the balance between man, nature and technology.

- Visitors can take a cable car from the ground floor to the top of the pavilion, from the prosperous city to the natural world.

- The pavilion is wrapped in a layer of intelligent fabric that can react to light energy and produce a visual effect characterised by flickering.

- The pavilion will install 12 man-sized screens. Swiss people from all kinds of professions, with the Alps as a backdrop, will talk about their future.

- The IMAX film "The Alps, Nature's Giant" will be shown.
