Cradle of culture

A FASHION show and dance performances will take the stage today in celebration of Turkey's National Pavilion Day.

The red and beige structure is in Zone C opposite the Germany Pavilion.

The exterior of the 2,000-square-meter pavilion drew its main inspiration from one of the first known settlements in the world called "Catalhoyuk" in Turkish, which were the center of advanced culture in the Neolithic period.

Themed "The Cradle of Civilization," the pavilion is divided into three sections that represent the past, present and future of an amazing journey.

The first section shows the visitors Turkey's historic firsts, featuring a map indicating the ancient sites of Turkey, the world's first mirror and the world's first man-built dam.?

The middle section is a 360-degree movie screen that displays scenes from the streets of Istanbul to reflect the pride of the city as the "European Capital of Culture."

The future in the final section is represented by the symbolic figure of the phoenix.

Traditional music will also be featured.
