Dream Pavilions: A Century of Progress
The unbuilt pavilions of the Chicago 1933 Worlds Fair and vintage photographs of A Century of Progress.
Sixty-five years ago, Chicago
hosted the 1933 World's Fair in a dream city on the lakefront. Art
Deco pavilions, designed by the country's most avant-garde architects
and designers, were constructed in stucco and mesh. They were meant
to last only a season, and evaporate after the Fair's summer production.
The show includes never-realized
designs by Alfonso Iannelli for the Goodyear Tire and Elgin Watch
exhibits, the Hall of Social Science and Adler Planetarium. Original
architectural drawings used to construct pavilions for Havoline Oil,
Enchanted Island and Radio Flyer will also be included.
