Expo ’67: 50 Year Anniversary

Geodesic Dome designed by Buckminster Fuller

April 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of  EXPO 67.

Expo 67 was open from April to October, 1967 in Montreal, Canada.

Expo 67, the “Universal and International Exhibition,” was the highlight of Canada’s Centennial celebrations in 1967. It featured 90 pavilions representing Man and His World, on a theme derived from Terre des Hommes, written by the famous French pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

The exposition displayed many nations, corporations, industries, technologies, social themes, religions and designs, including the U.S. pavilion, a geodesic dome designed by Buckminster Fuller. Expo 67 also featured Habitat 67, an urban modular housing complex designed by architect Moshe Safdie, whose units were purchased by private Montrealers after the fair was concluded, and is still occupied today.

The site consisted of two islands and a peninsula in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. The admission ticket was referred to as a passport and entitled the holders to free entry to all pavilions as well as unlimited use of the mass transit system – Expo-Express. The passport could be filled with “visa stamps” at the National Pavilions. Further reading..
