A modern takeon ancient forms

The Angola Pavilion architecture evokes both modernist design and the looping shapes of Angolan Sona sand drawings. It is anchored by a golden, geometric sunburst held aloft by a ring of tall, slim silver pillars.


The pavilion is a tribute to indigenous tradition and a future of innovation.

Angola showcases the disappearing art of storytelling.
