    World's Fairs - 3D reconstructions - Life !
  1. If some of you have visited previous Expos, they certainly visit the travelling exhibition of the Bureau International des Expositions. This exhibition was held in Astana (Kazakhstan) from january 11 to march 10, 2012, for its Expo 2017 bid. Now the event is finished, but you have the possibility to visit the EXPOxEXPOS of BIE in 3D on the Astana 2017 Website. (The 3D visit is in Flash technology) There's also a video on Youtube, to promote the interactive 3D model of EXPOxEXPOS : http://youtu.be/9TEsm8W4sgc
  2. Expo 58 View-Master scenes

    I use also a V700... it's a very good scanner... but effectively, viewmaster doesn't have enough high resolution to have better result. You already have a top quality in this case !
  3. Really, all these infrmations are very sad... It's hard to understand why the city of Montréal doesn't have more respect to its history. Expo'67 make a lot for the city and the country, and is always today very symbolic of Montréal. Photo of the Korea tower : http://lemog3d.blogs...ge-expo-67.html

  5. Expo 2020 Bids

    Sorry Randy, I don't saw the question before, the map is the 1867 Paris Expo... this one is very rare and often photographied by candidates when they come at the BIE. I saw Mr. Orlov before yesterday during the BIE GA... very interesting event with all these bids !!! very rich !! Unfortunately, my 3 months collaboration with Russian committee was stopped... don't know why exactly... certainly for politic reasons or changes of head committee... anyway, that doesn'tn start well for them, they're not very honest ! I saw their new consultant cabinet at the general assembly, they look like mafia ! I'm actually writing some little articles with photos on my blog, if you're interested, I put the text in english in the lower part of article. I will try to post some news here, but I'm very busy right now (and often...) : http://lemog3d.blogspot.com/ It's not finish, I continue today and during the weekend

  10. Main palace at the "Champ-de-Mars", the "Rue des Nations" (nations street), front of United States of America : US - Two letters, one hundred years ago, by the generous hand of France! Two symbols, double memory! Two initials that together they were enough to form a flag, the New World. United States! United States of America, we salute you! On the front of the American Union, these two letters are repeated everywhere, and, below them, the starry flag, 13 stars, the 13 original States of the Union, with French colors, blue, red and white. We can't stop at the front without feeling an emotion legitimate, because there's much blood of France in the veins of these energetic men who haven't taken a century to found this settlement so powerful and so rich today with which the old world will be starting tomorrow, maybe! We will see later, while visiting the U.S. exhibition, how much power these people reached. Here, we exclusively examined the facade it has built on our street Nations. Accurate picture of his masters, still practice the civilized nomad tent, which can be taken apart and rebuilt in a day to follow its owner everywhere he goes, from the Savannah from Ohio to the grassy plains of Texas. Hung everywhere, badges of state and gathered by the magic word: Time is gold ! On these patches, the canting arms of each State. Connecticut: 3 vines. O my France, I see you smile. Massachusetts: the defeated Indian with his bow useless when the white man has made talk the powder. Pennsylvania: three sheaves of wheat, daughters of the earth, a plow, the first thought of man, a ship that eternal trafficker. New York: A rising sun, brilliant allegory! sun high up rather in the very zenith the sky. Vermont: three sheaves of wheat, a lion, a fir tree. Virginia: An Indian who terrace a crowned king , with this motto Sic Semper Tyrannis, the crown falls and will be trampled. Is that you, future? South Carolina: two shields joined together, on one, a palm tree with the words: Animis opibus que parati, on the other, a woman standing with this motto: Dum Spiro Spero. So shoot such people! North Carolina: Two women, one sitting on a cornucopia, the other Respublica, holding the Constitution, and at the end of his spear the red Phrygian cap. Rhode Island: An anchor, the sea is there. Maryland: Two cross necklace. The Delaware: An ox, a sheaf of wheat and an ear, soft symbols of agriculture. New Hampshire: A lighthouse, a sunrise and a ship ready to be launched into the sea. New Jersey: Three plows. The District of Columbia: With a Republic in a red cap, still wearing the Constitution under this date: 1871. At the pediment of the facade, the eagle bearing the shield of American national, flag of the sea, which makes thinking there the leopard of the Old England. Take care! peoples of Europe. The American land was only yesterday, your dependent, and now it's enough in itself, tomorrow it clogging your markets, and the day she will want more, it comes, you sell bales of cotton or its wheat, the axis of the commercial world will be changed! Front on Street of Nations, description: The pavilion of the United States of America is a building in the type of houses that are raising the rich American colonists, in which iron and brick play the greatest role. Both elegant and practical, this beautiful building gives us the exact model of the buildings constructed by the active inhabitants of the New World.
