In #1, it looks like a display of Legos, so probably the Scandinavia Pavilion.

For the last two, I'm guessing the atrium of the Czechoslovakia Pavilion. But it's just a guess.

Maybe more than a guess.
This looks a LOT like a statue shown at the Czechoslovakia Pavilion at Expo 86 in Vancouver. Not the same statue, but like somebody tried to recreate the original.

The Denmark section of the Scandinavia Pavilion is described as followed: "Denmark's section of the pavilion seemed almost empty until the visitor became aware of large abstract spatial sculptures floating in mid-air but suspended from the ceiling."
And as previously mentioned, there's the Lego connection as well.

Thanks, Randy. These all appear to be from Czechoslovakia, including the one with what looks like Legos. I just pulled the slides and the ones right before this batch are definitely Czechoslovakia. The "Lego" one is in the middle of the unknown ones, so it makes sense they are from Czechoslovakia.
