Andean Amazonian Pavilion

Official name

Andean Amazonian Pavilion

Theme / Exhibition

Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela, which have created the Andean Community, have many commonly shared geographical areas, such as the Andean mountains and the Amazon River, and they are among the 12 countries richest in biodiversity in the world.

The Andean mountain system surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean produces a rich marine and freshwater environment, protecting wide natural forests in the region, including the Guayana group of isolated mountains, and the world's largest biodiversity.
Making use of such characteristics, the front of the pavilion is wreathed in mist, producing the image of the Andean region as a "paradise full of natural wisdom." Nature in the Andean and Amazon area not only supplies farm produce and water resources but also is supporting human life globally by purifying air. To protect the future of life on the Earth, rediscovery of a paradise is important.
Reaching the top after passing through the seven life zones in the tunnel, visitors can see various exhibits showing cultures in the Andean and Amazon region from olden times to today. There, human wisdom, and modern cities and sciences and various other creations are positioned to face nature's wisdom that has produced such things.
From there, visitors move to the balcony to see the landscape of a small area called "abyss" where city residents went for the first time decades ago. This experience of getting a bird's-eye view of Amazon virgin forests will surely amaze visitors.
After encountering with supreme natural beauty, visitors get in touch with orally transmitted tales, magic, magical realism, knowledge handed down from generation to generation, and other wisdom of ordinary people.
