Remembering the Future: Architecture at the 1964/65 New York World’s Fair
August 20, 2016
World’s fairs offered the chance for architects to explore new concepts and technologies in order to create a memorable, visceral experience for a broad public. Structures designed for the 1964/65 New York World’s Fair were emblematic of a turbulent period for both architecture and society. Conceived at the dawn of the Space Age, the Fair opened as the country was coming to terms with civil rights and technological and social upheaval. At the World's Fair, Modern architecture met Pop Art. Explore extant architecture from the 1964/65 Fair including Philip Johnson’s New York State Pavilion, Wallace Harrison’s Hall of Science, and modern sculpture by Peter Muller Monk and others, while commemorating the 50th anniversary of the memorable, controversial exposition. Organized by the AIANY Architecture Tour committee.
