Haiti Pavilion

The pavilion's decor set the mood of this French speaking nation's modest pavilion as gay and cheerful. The outer walls of 16 hollow cubes of varying height were painted white, while their interior surfaces, in shades of orange, reflected the rays of the sun filtered through transparent plastic that covered the entire pavilion area. Exterior walls of glass gave passersby a clear view of its interior.

Sisal, cotton and tapestries were displayed on floors and walls. Sculpture, paintings and dolls were hung from steel wires stretched between floor and ceiling.

Haiti's Pavilion was along a canal.
