Guinea Pavilion

A bridge lead across a stream to the pavilion's three round buildings. Two small thatch-roofed structures set in a tropical landscape contained industrial exhibits, a shop that sold souvenirs and a tourism center. The round main building with curving glass walls inside a steel grid, housed handicrafts; carvings of wood and ivory, silver and bead jewelry, ceramics and cloth with bold print designs. There was also a travel display and a restaurant in which members of Guinea's famed ballet troupe, Les Ballets Africans, performed.
