FEATURES

The Sierra Leone Pavilion consists of an organic grouping of three conical shapes, reminiscent of the country's mountain peaks and roof shapes, and carries out the three-pyramid motif of the country's coat of arms.

Walls of colorful three-dimensional murals provide an appropriate background for exhibits reflecting the country's history and culture, and its socially and economically promising future.

The foreground cone partly covers an outdoor-indoor display plaza. The central cone houses an elevated stage for performances of native dances.
