An interplay of dark cork and bright light
An unbroken cork façade lends Mediterranean flair to the Spanish pavilion. A columned hall provides access to this cork building, which is partitioned into deep recesses. There are steps leading from a covered patio in the centre of the presentation upstairs to the six exposition halls. The form of the staircase is influenced by the recesses in the exterior of the façade.

The exhibition focuses on science, research and technology, dedicated to sustainable development and solidarity. Spain's extraordinary biological variety - a rich contrast of landscapes and climatic conditions - is also displayed here. The Spanish language is widespread - serving as the economic and cultural language in South and Central America and large areas of North America. Examples of classical and, above all, contemporary art and design are presented in exhibitions and cultural supporting programmes.
