FEATURES
The Austrian Pavilion will be "A" shaped in design to symbolize Austria as a land of mountains and tourism; and will be constructed of wood to symbolize the richness of the timber and industry. The exterior decor will be predominantly the natural color of wood combined with red and white Eternit finish. Seats and exhibition items in a landscaped area will provide an attractive haven for visitors to rest. A modern sculpture will be featured outside the pavilion.

The pavilion, with a simple but effective interior, will be divided into three main sections; promotion of Austria, promotion of tourism, and promotion of economy. The exhibition hall will have hanging aluminum drums, groups of plastic domes containing display items and glass cases for the display of exhibits. The ceiling will have exposed beams and indirect illumination, while natural colored coconut mats will cover the floor.
