Weave your way through 10,000 years of rich history
Timeless, always Peru
Each year, residents of Peru’s Quehue District re-weave Q’Eswachaka, the last of the Incan rope bridges, in a custom that goes back 600 years. Now, at the Peru Pavilion, you can witness this ancient tradition in real time, as part of a wide-ranging showcase of Peru’s timeless culture. The pavilion’s elegant, loom-like exterior is a reference to Peruvian traditional woven crafts but, from nutrient-rich superfoods to staggering ancient ruins, there’s much to explore from one of the world’s most biodiverse nations.

A traditional blanket
The Peru Pavilion is a large rectangular structure wrapped in a woven-looking façade, like a vibrantly coloured traditional blanket draped over a grand table. This woven element, which is composed of layered, multi-coloured vertical lines, surrounds the entire pavilion, curving up on the bottom left side to reveal an open, shaded courtyard and performance space. On the lower right, the pavilion’s tall entryway slices through the woven exterior and plunges down a glowing tunnel.
