In 1970, a World's Fair was held in Osaka, Japan, between March 13th and September 15th. It was called "Expo '70", and its theme was "Progress and Harmony for Mankind". 13 Japanese architects developed a plan that included some stunningly futuristic buildings. While this is a World's Fair that is not well-known to most Westerners, it appears to have been an amazing event.
And while the scans that I am sharing today are very nice, I'm afraid I know basically nothing about what is pictured. Unlike other Fairs, there does not appear to be a ton of info out there. So... just enjoy the photos!
This reminds me of "Logan's Run" for some reason. Only better. Except that it doesn't have Jenny Agutter. If anybody has any info to add regarding these photos, I would appreciate it!
There's something comforting about a Habitrail for humans. All I need now is a handful of food pellets and a bottle that dispenses water. And maybe a few wood shavings.
The future is here! As designed by Willy Wonka. I have more slides of Expo 1970... I think it's time to find a book or good website so that I can provide some information!
