According to the representative of Vietnam, water is the most important element in the world for the nourishment and life of all living things, yet in reality, it is threatened by the effects of pollution, overfishing and waste. The lotus flower is widespread in Vietnam, growing from the mud and expressing a disarming beauty with a capacity for purifying the water in which it thrives. This double image was chosen to convey the message of Vietnam to the international community about its commitment to actively protecting the environment and water resources.
Designed by Vietnam’s famous architecture Vo Trong Nghia, Vietnam’s pavilion is said to use the least energy and be the most environment-friendly.
