Berlin Pavilion

The industry, cultural heritage and future of Germany's free world outpost were the themes of this privately sponsored pavilion. The round shaped building had a tent-like roof of flexible plastic. Showcases inside displayed samples of products made in West Berlin, and portraits depicted Berliners who had won renown in many fields. Also displayed was the work of then current artists and sculptors.

A short newsreel showed cultural, social and technological events in the city, and a cartoon showed West Berliners going about their daily life. Nearby a map showed the Berlin of the future.
