236. IBM Pavilion 1964-65 New York World's Fair


Dear Eliel,

The atmosphere of the IBM
Pavilion at the New York
World's Fair 1964-65 was
that of a covered garden.
45 tall corten steel trees
hold a large green translucent
plastic cover for a series of
colorful exhibits underneath.
The main attraction though was
the "Information Machine",
an ovoid theater with multiple
screen projection, raised 90
feet above the ground. Here
the Eames-produced
documentary "Think" was
projected onto twenty
screens of different shapes
and sizes.

Best wishes.
R
