  1. Check on the Expo 70 group page on Facebook. Tons of stuff there.
  2. The Quebec pavilion apparently was the hot place to go for staff members as they had a discotheque that opened around 6pm. It was a huge hit and added a certain JE NE SAIS QUOI to the festivities. There is a great photo display of the pavilion on the EXPO 70 group page on Facebook. Excellent shots of inside, the design models and the art. Quebec knew the power of an Expo and wanted to capitalize on it.
  3. Wow!!! Awesome! I had no idea about this.
  4. speaking of garbage cans, when TOMORROWLAND crew recreated NYWF on the University of BC campus in Vancouver a few years ago, they created the familiar light gray or beige coloured garbage cans with the WF logo on it. Looked awesome. I really wanted to take one home! Will try to find a pic of this. http://yvrshoots.com/2013/08/set-tomorrowlands-hall-of-invention-at-the-h-r-macmillan-space-centre.html
  5. Man, still cant download your pdfs. I cant even download your 5 page brewers pavilion pdf. I click on it and it shows that its trying to connect and then it just times out. I did manage to download your Canada Pavilion pdf which was brilliant. If I am having issues perhaps others are too? Too bad.
  6. Fantastic...many thanks Roger. Excited to read it. You also did a separate one on the concept design for Quebec?
  7. is it possible if you send me the link for the Quebec Pavilion? I was lucky enough to see it back in the early 80's. Did you do one for Ontario too? Just incredible. Roger...its all that I wanted to know about these places. What a gift.
  8. I see what you mean. Thanks for posting on Facebook! Roger, your blog site is fantastic. I love how much detail you have in the pdf overviews you have created for each pavilion or event. Brilliant. Thanks for this. Really feels like I was got to know each place. Roger, one last thing. Is there a faster way to download all of your pdfs that you have done so far? My computer tries to download but gets stopped due to taking too much time. Thanks!!
  9. What a great design. Stunning.
  10. No photo is showing from my side
  11. Can you resend the photo? Curious now. Thanks!
  12. Roger, one thing I notice is that you don't go into detail regarding the LAND of CANADA section, how did one view this exhibit? The pavilion book says the original idea was to look through peep holes around 3 big spheres to see the movie and hear the song. This was changed to 3 diamond shapes due to ease of access and to fit in with the angular/pyramid mineral physical look of the overall pavilion.
  13. Absolutely brilliant, Roger. Just a great job in compiling all of this information. The photos are fantastic and your level of detail in what you cover is amazing. My French is not very good but I was able to read bits and pieces here and there. Any plans to translate portions into English?
  14. Oh no! I cant download it. Drop box doesn't like me. This sounds fantastic Roger...thank you! Now please do one for all of the pavilions that I want to know about but was too young to visit. LOL
  15. awesome. I remember seeing an espisode of Batman where this pavilion was featured...I think.
