The facilities and Pavilions were all planned to be temporary and demolished in the months that followed the exposition, however only some of them were. Some of the facilities and Pavilions were converted for other uses and some of them were left to decay. The post-apocalyptic science fiction landscape pictured below is what remains of the “Plaza of the Future” - a vision of the future envisaged back in 1992.

|The Plaza of the Future overgrown and left to decay. Views of its original grandeur can be found here, here and here.|
|The "Seville rocket", a replica of the European Space Agency's Ariane Four launch system, which graces the Plaza of the Future.|
|The biosphere - this huge sphere was used to spray micro-fine jets of water to cool visitors to the exposition.|
