50 Years Later: What is the Design Legacy of the 1964 World's Fair? (Part I)

159 views 2 months ago
The pavilions at the 1964 World's Fair represent a vigorous burst of creativity in design, engineering and construction. Then, the New York AEC community became relatively innovative for the next half century. What was it about that project and that time that cultivated innovation, and what can it teach us about rekindling that innovation and make it "business as usual" in New York?

The panel discussion included those who helped design and build the 1964 World's Fair, including Vincent DeSimone, Ken Hiller, Frank Marino, Alan Ritchie, and Charlie Thornton. The panel is moderated by Tom Scarangello.
