Irish ayes have it

IRELAND celebrates its National Pavilion Day with an art exhibition and traditional Irish dance at Zone C today, showcasing its theme of "Urban Space and the Evolution of Urban Life Style" to the full.

The architecture of the translucent lantern-like pavilion is intended to symbolize the relationship between urban and rural, man-made and natural.

The exhibition inside sets the creativity of the Irish - their ancient history, vibrant modern culture, educational traditions and technical innovation - into the context of a small, but surprisingly varied and beautiful island.

Visitors will be surprised to discover a cultural continuity dating back to the Stone Age, while enjoying a whole range of contemporary audiovisuals, exhibits, displays, readings, music and performances.

The Ireland Pavilion has five enclosed galleries that are linked by slight inclines.

It combines art and music, exhibiting graceful and mysterious elements.

There is a large screen that introduces the Irish people and their changing city scapes.

The pavilion also includes a courtyard plaza. Visitors will see the "wisdom of nature" and experience the cultural heritage of Ireland in a must-see celebration of the Emerald Isle.
