The U.S. Pavilion at Night

Check out these ultra-fabulous night shots of the U.S. Pavilion at Expo 67:

A stunning view of the edge of one of the exhibit platforms.

Huge paintings by well-known American artists adorned the dome's interior.

Destination Moon, the pavilion's much-hyped space exhibit.

Life-sized models of satellites and rockets hung on enormous parachutes.

The Minirail, as it entered the dome.

The dark spots were actually retractable screens, used for climate control.

Ultra groovy, Jason. I have this hope that one day the US Pavillion will be converted to some kind of cultural centre rather than just a boring science museum...

They should re-cover the dome with some kind of "skin"... although flammability-wise, acrylic proved to be a bad idea!

This is so interesting! Ron and I had cycled there recently, and I was trying to tell him about the US Pavillion. Now he can see for himself!
