From decumano, along a paved area representing the cotton plant, you walk along a reproduction of a shallow crater with two or three steps, illuminated by small and fine lights. The central part of the crater will be possibly red, evoking the splendour of gas springs.
The spatial layout of the complex, influenced by the chemical structure of methane gas (CH4), is made of steel tubes, designed to achieve a network structure in which the triangles are empty or filled with glass windowsor with insulated opaque panels.
In the core area you will find a dedicated point where personnel offer information about the country and the exposition. In the same area traditional food seasoned by typical essences of Turkmenistan will be exposed, offering visitors the opportunity to taste some samples.
A second environment is closely following, where traditional rugs will be the frame of handicraft and ancient autochthonous objects. Cotton trees and dedicated machinery will explain the art of fabric. In the third area the industrial excellence will be shown to the visitors potentially interested investing in the country. Screens and panels around the entire area will connect the three sectors with films and projections about the country.
Outdoor, a space will be dedicated to horses. In the case live animals could not be allowed inside the Expo, we propose to keep the reference to the traditional animals by introducing sculptures and a carousel depicting the horses of Türkmenistan. Technology, already highlighted by the special structure of the pavilion, will be reproposed by large photographs of the mechanisms adopted for extracting oil and for perforations.
A small area of approximately 30 sqm, with a private toilet, will be reserved for guests (VIP area) to organize business meetings and relaxing.
Some archaeological findings or their photographic reproduction will close the path of this fairy tale country.
