Staged to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal, and drawing over 19 million visitors in only nine months, the Pan-Pacific International Expo rose like a literal jewel from the ashes of San Francisco's 1906 Earthquake and Fire.
A Century of Progress International Exposition was held in Chicago, Illinois from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. The theme of the fair was technological innovation. Its motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Conforms".
The 1939-40 New York World's Fair, located on the current site of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, was one of the largest world's fairs of all time. The fair ran for two seasons and over 44 million people attended.

The 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair, located on the current site of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. The fair ran for two seasons and took place without sanctioning from the Bureau of International Expositions.

However, in one of Bill Cotter's earlier photo posting, we saw this picture:
Notice the blue and white striped tent next to Sinclair.
On the 1964 map it shows an empty lot where the tent is. I wonder if the Lowenbrau Gardens bumped whoever was in the tent off the empty lot?
Strange that they have the same blue and white stripes.
Bumping up this topic to see if anyone gets a new inspiration.
The crossed line structure always reminds me of the Christian Science skylights, but the only thing I know of documented to be there is an abstract tree sculpture in the main unit, and from the photos I've seen it may have been too low to be visible from outside.
Criss-cross bars, round "plates" and external foliage... still not ID'd.
