‘Unbuilt Visions’: What Could Have Been


Throughout the history of international expositions, organizers and designers have envisioned fair pavilions and even whole expositions that were never realized. This includes fairs planned for Miami in 1941, Rome in 1942, and Chicago in 1992. Unrealized pavilions resulted from both changing political and economic conditions in the years leading up to the events and architects and other designers using the expositions as venues through which to present their ideas through paper architecture. This project will bring 
together research that explores the designs and underlying reasons for exposition visions to remain unrealized and reflect on their lasting significance.
