Korea Pavilion

The rather small Korean pavilion was built entirely of wood and combined traditional Korean architecture and the qualities of modern design. Its entrance tower, soaring towards the sky, symbolized Korean aspirations.

The Korean pavilion was entirely made of wood.

Inside the exhibition hall visitors meet the Korea of yesterday and today, land and people, growth and development. Special displays were devoted to Korean art through more than 4000 years. On display were authentic models of the world's first iron-clad warship, designed by Admiral Yi Sun-Shin in 1595, and a replica of a 5th century Maiterya Budda image. Manufactured goods of many kinds were also on display.
