Lego. Architecture. Expo’67

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Architecture, Lego, and Expo’67; three pleasures of mine that I’ve been indulging with a goal of reproducing as best as possible the pavilions from the Montréal World Exposition in 1967.

While I’m working on them I have a chance to think about the intentions of the fair and the idealism that was part of that era. In perspective the world fell short of expectations, but Canada was like a teenager leaving home and entering the world stage. Optimism and enthusiasm was part of that moment.
