Today we’re showing you another pavilion from a country you most likely aren’t very familiar with: Turkmenistan. The state is one of the birthplaces of ancient civilisations and was crossed by the Great Silk Road. With a fast-growing economy and wealth of natural, biological and cultural resources, Turkmenistan is becoming more and more globally important. The Turkmen pavilion’s theme is Water is Life, so water is present throughout, including a horse’s head fountain at the entreance and LED water drops on the outside of the pavilion, as well as a water feature with projection on the inside. The pavilion combines the modern and the traditional, showing guests high tech ideas in the form of a 5-D cinema as well as an LED version of the traditionally hand-made Turkmen carpets, and even yurts like the one on the rooftop of the pavilion. Over 3 floors, visitors will learn about food production, biodiversity and health, and of course can taste traditional Turkmen dishes.
