FEATURES
Spain's influence in the discovery, colonization and independence of America will be the dominant theme of the Spanish Pavilion. The Pavilion will consist of three buildings constructed with steel frames and pre-cast concrete wall panels.
 
One section will be an 850-seat theatre for the presentation of a variety of programs, from concerts by top Spanish artists, to fashion shows. There will also be a festival of motion pictures dealing with history, tradition, and present industrial and artistic life of Spain.
 
A second area will consist of two galleries. One will be an exhibit of paintings, sculpture and antiques, including a number of masterpieces on loan from Spanish museums and private collections. The second gallery will be composed of 12 different exhibits, each representative of a period in the history of Spanish painting.
 
There will be three restaurants and a "wine cave". Five patios will provide space for visitors to relax amid pools, fountains, trees and flowers.
