Korea Pavilion

An oriental teahouse, with traditional peaked wooden roof, is linked with a concrete pavilion of contemporary lines; linking the Korea of yesterday and today. Within the pavilion were ancient art, folk dances, and products for sale from Korea's rebuilt industries. Films and slides showed the art and life of contemporary Korea.

The Korea Pavilion.

Located between the two buildings was a replica of the Tabo Pagoda, or Tower of Many Treasures. It was built in Kyongju, Korea's capital during its Golden Age. The Sixth Century pagoda is considered a masterpiece of Oriental carved stonemasonry.
