France Pavilion
A hymn to Love​

French Republic

A Hymn to Love and Invitation to Boldness and Commitment​

The theme of the France Pavilion is a hymn to love.

In Japanese culture, the legend of the red thread refers to the joining of two beings by an invisible, indestructible magic thread attached to their little fingers. The France Pavilion, with its own “red thread”, offers a new vision of the future, one guided by various forms of Love such as “Loving yourself”, “Loving others” and “Loving nature”.

From the entrance, its facade will unfold, resembling an open theater stage to the public while preserving an element of mystery. The side facades, like stage curtains, will remain entirely veiled. There will be a garden, revealing itself at the last moment, during the visit from the permanent exhibition.
