Jordan Pavilion


Jordan Pavilion

THEME: Oasis of Hope, Transmission of the Gods

PAVILION: The entrance of the Pavilion resembles architecture in ancient Petra.  

EXHIBIT: Jordan is a melting pot of cultures. The Pavilion represents the charm of ancient civilizations, conveys the theme, interprets the harmony between humans, cities, nature and life, and delivers the idea that development and renovation are everlasting whether in the past, present or future. The Pavilion houses magnificent Khazneh. This is a grand architecture of Hellenistic style with the legend of “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.” Also displayed is an exhibit on the evolution of the city of Aqaba from a port to a city of commerce and leisure, as well as one on the ways of living and renovation in other cities. Visitors will enter the Pavilion past a reception desk and down a pathway that resembles rock of the Jordan Valley, leading into the first of three exhibition galleries, “History.” Six stone columns make a partition between the first and second galleries. Along the walls are oversized photos of Jordanian historic sites as well as the natural landscapes of Jordan that our ancestors thousands of years ago enjoyed the same way modern Jordanians do. The second gallery, the Present,  will be dominated by a circular area surrounded by seven monuments, representing the points of the sacred seven-pointed star. On each monument will be photos and video screens showing the daily life of ordinary Jordanians. In the center of the circle is an abstract art installation, the “Tree of Hope.” A stone pillar symbolizes the spiritual pillar of Jordan, a shining beacon of hope; the ribbons at the top are colored with the four element colors of the flag of Jordan while the dangling “leaves” represent the people of Jordan. Surrounding the “Tree of Hope” exhibit are display walls exhibiting the evolution of modern Jordan. The third and final exhibition gallery represents the Future and is dominated by a large embossment entitled “Jordan: Illuminating the World’s Future” and offers a visual representation of Jordan’s leadership into a bright future. Exhibits along the walls to the exit use large flat boards illustrating Jordan’s plans for the future.

CUISINE: There is no dining area listed for the Pavilion.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.

Note: This Pavilion is part of the Asia Joint Pavilion II
