Dominica Pavilion


Dominica Pavilion

THEME: Green Life in Natural Cities

PAVILION: This open-roofed Pavilion utilizes the color green not only as a symbol of the national flag but also of the ecological responsibility that is a hallmark of Dominica. The Pavilion is divided into five distinct exhibition areas.

EXHIBIT: The Pavilion demonstrates the interaction between the rural and the urban environments of Dominica with a stream that runs through the Pavilion with charming footbridges allowing access to either side. A mini-waterfall near the rear of the Pavilion represents the natural beauty of the Dominican landscape. A half-buried Amerindian canoe reminds us of the native peoples of the island. Display areas show the native artwork and handicrafts of Dominica, along with video screens showing the lush natural landscape of the island. In the center of the Pavilion is a gazebo of the type commonly found in Dominica; from time to time, local music and dance performances will be staged there. On the right wall video screens show the lively Old Market and Roseau Market in the capital city of Roseau; along the wall, umbrella tables show the wares that can be purchased in the Markets. In the rear of the Pavilion is an exhibit of the Roseau Botanical Gardens, including a recreation of the main gates of the Gardens. A large photomural displays Morne Bruce, with the cross and the mountain there, leading up to a large flat-panel video display screen showing scenes of Dominica. Smaller screens on either side of the main screen also show various scenes of Dominica, Roseau and the countryside. To the left of the Botanical Garden display is an exhibit on the Green side of Dominica, including a windmill and a solar-powered greenhouse.
