World's FairsBook - 1998
World's Fairs have always motivated architects, artists, and designers to create the exceptional. The Eiffel Tower, the Crystal Palace, and the Seattle Space Needle are all products of World's Fairs. Yet many of these splendid structures have been woefully consigned to oblivion. This book highlights all the major exhibitions from London in 1851, Montreal in 1967, to Hannover in the year 2000, including their most important pavilions and other architectural creations, using original plans, design studies, period photographs, and ephemera such as programs and postcards.
