The Philippines Pavilion

The coral reef represents the archipelagic nature of the Philippines and embodies the qualities of the Filipino people that allow them to remain hyper-connected while building vibrant communities in many nations around the world. In celebration of these virtues, the pavilion is appropriately named Bangkóta, derived from the ancient Tagalog term for a coral reef, and is aimed at promoting sustainability.
The Philippines Pavilion promises to highlight the artistry of globally recognized Filipinos at one of the most anticipated international events this year. Led by Philippine National Artist for Music Ramon P. Santos, a diverse selection of the country’s most outstanding artists will showcase their work at the pavilion.
