THEME: Paradox Between Ancient and Modern Cities of Mauritania

PAVILION: The Pavilion represents the contrasts between the modern and the ancient, with modern design and exhibitions, while built to resemble the eternal stone walls of the ancient cities.

EXHIBIT: The Pavilion has three distinct exhibition spaces. In Footprint of the Ancient City, artifacts and photographs of archaeological digs in the Saharan desert of Mauritania give visitors an idea of life in ancient times, and the wisdom that allowed the ancient inhabitants of Mauritania the ability to survive in one of the world’s harshest environments. In City Impressions, the modern city of Nouakchott is showcased, with exhibits devoted to Sino-Mauritanian construction co-operation on public facilities, population growth and control, and the progressive outlook for Mauritanian cities. Urban Wisdom is the last exhibition area. In the center of the Pavilion is a traditional Mauritanian tent where visitors may rest briefly before seeing the rest of Expo.
