Many of such spaces are rather simple white tents, but the production company P&G Cenografia, which projected the State of Rio de Janeiro pavilion, seems to be following green design fads and came up with a massive structure covered with what they’re saying are around 7,000 recovered pallets (which were bought from a Curitiba company through a tender).
The two buildings and the public space created around them has a total surface of 3,500 Sq. meters (37,600 Sq. feet). Inside of the spaces there are exhibitions and sitting areas also created with recovered pallets and with painted tires.
