The Mozambican Pavilion offers two sections. The first shows the country's reality through images and audiovisual media. The second section illustrates the evolution of Mozambican architecture, from vernacular to urban, and compares it with international architecture from 1914 to 2014. The exhibit also chronologically presents significant events in Mozambique's history and architectural achievements. It aims to promote a deeper understanding of Mozambique's architectural culture, which has been influenced mainly by European culture in the past.
