FEATURES
The Republic of Sudan Exhibit will consist of one large structure and five individual booths. It is designed to be both entertaining and educational.

Approximately one-third of the total area will be occupied by the main two-story structure, which will be Islamic in design. Reinforced concrete and wooden screening will be the basic constitutents of the exterior walls. The wooden screens between the concrete columns will be backed by glass panels. Another feature of the architecture will be a large native mosaic, to be situated on the front of the building.
 
The first floor of the main building will be divided into several sections. Cinema programs and native entertainment will be viewed by visitors enjoying refreshments in an enclosed area on this level. In addition to this, publicity and information booths will be located here, as well as a native products' specialty shop.

The upper floor will be the site of the Sudanese handicraft displays. This part of the pavilion will also contain a photographic view of the country.

Five separate booths will be built on the remaining grounds of the exhibit. Constructed from bamboo materials, these will be modeled on the natives' huts, and will house craftsmen performing their occupations.
