If you are interested in seeing pictures from Expo 2017, I am starting to post them on my photo blog http://adventuresinarchitecture.blogspot.com/. I have been posting one photograph a day from my travels around the world since visiting Brazil as part of a Fulbright program in 2017. If you go back into the archive you can also find photos of Expo 2010 and Expo 2015. (It's a bit cumbersome as you can't just click on the place, but have to look at the list of places, note the month and year, and then scroll down and click on the dates listed below.) I plan to post Expo 2017 photos for at least two months. After some general images, August will mostly be signage and parts of facades that include text. September will have greater variety. Usually the images I post are more artistic than documentary. I do request that if you do want to use any of the images that you let me know and give a credit line. It's a bit grainy, but here is today's photo. Enjoy!
Was online trying to get a better idea of what the upcoming Expo 2017 in Astana, Kazakhstan really looks like-- since it opens in only 63 days, and virtually all of the photos on the official Expo website are still artists conceptions. And while some of the recent pavilion photos are actually pretty interesting-- I did come across this article about a construction collapse at the site back in November of last year. Apparently a decorative bridge between two buildings fell, and thankfully, no one was injured. Here it is before... And here it is after... And finally, here's an article with a few more details.
