And what is the connection, you might ask, between me and Expo 70. Well, I worked there, in the Australian pavilion, to be precise. Although her article is for an architectural magazine, she wanted to add some spice, I guess, by asking some of us – the people who worked there – about our experiences from that very special period.
But it wasn't the only amazing pavilion; they were all amazing, or at least most of them. In fact, countries competed with each other to produce a structure that would stand out among the others in spectacularity and/or originality. And indeed each of them stood out. Some were beautiful and some ugly, but there was no doubt they were all talking points. And all the designs could be called futuristic.
Wandering around the exhibition grounds, we felt we were in a space age park, cut off from the real world around us. Each pavilion was an experience to view both outside and in. The best way to convey this sense to readers is simply to show you some of the images.
