The Portuguese Pavillion for the World Water Forum in México aimed to reflect upon the importance of water resources in its management in the Portuguese territory. Through the study of three major rivers Douro, Tejo and Guadiana one can define the three different territories and landscapes which characterise Portugal. The Pavillion consists of three extruded river path diagrams that contain information about the rivers and water management in Portugal. Five cylindrical structures hang from the ceiling with a video of water projected upon them, while water sounds are played together with traditional music of the regions where the rivers are located. Each cylinder plays specific music which is accompanied by ambient sounds from the corners of the Pavillion. This provided visitors with different feelings and perceptions depending on where they were in the pavilion, creating an immersive experience.
