    Description

    Switzerland was allocated a space by ‘Expo Zaragoza’ in the Pavilion set for Mountainous Countries. The Swiss exhibition theme was ‘Water and Sustainable Development’. The proposition by VOLPATOHATZ showed the extension of the Swiss Rhone Glacier working like a large organ pumping and feeding many principle rivers throughout Europe. These rivers and their adjacent countries are known to be dependent on the water supplies of Swiss glacier.
