FEATURES
The pavilion will be a simple concrete block structure. However, the facade will be an interesting combination of color and texture. At the main entrance, traditional features such as the arch, pools, gardens and the dome have been translated into contemporary forms. The dome is essentially derived from the curvature of a mogul cupola and will serve as a translucent skylight over the seating area inside the pavilion.
 
The pavilion is completely air conditioned, but visitors may enjoy the terrace, which is enclosed by a low planter wall. The area is dominated by a large brass thal, depicting the coat of arms of the Republic. On the south facade is a raised bronze sign reading "Pakistan."
 
Visitors will enter the pavilion over a bridge spanning the pools, which leads directly to the exhibition area that surrounds the centrally located auditorium. After viewing the three main exhibits, the visitor has a choice of seeing a film in the auditorium, sampling Pakistani refreshments, or going into the bazaar.

On the mezzanine floor more detailed information about Pakistan may be obtained from the office staff.
