Syria Pavilion


Syria Pavilion

THEME: Damascus: The Oldest Capital Still Inhabited

PAVILION: The distinctive architecture and culture of Syria is well-interpreted by traditional elements – folk residences in Damascus dwelled in by three generations. In the courtyard there is a well in the center with valuable antiques displayed around it and aromatic bonsais in the corners.    

EXHIBIT: Three components of the exhibition – Cultural Stories of the Wheat/Silk Road, Arabic Library and From Ancient Hamoukar to Modern Damascus – are arranged in three halls linked with each other. Architectures and stories bring visitors to the 4,500 year history of Damascus, the capital of Syria and a city of the heavens. The opening hall shows artifacts from Syria’s glorious past in display cases in a space that celebrates the beautiful architecture of Syria. The main display area includes some artwork from modern Syrian artists. The entire Pavilion is meant to pay tribute to the elements of a Damascene home, from the cooling pool in the center of the Pavilion to the “open courtyard.”

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

SHOPPING: There is a small shopping area in the Pavilion.

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