Canada and the World Pavilion, Expo ’67

DESCRIPTION: The Expo site was conceived as a national pavilion and provided a panorama of Canada’s contribution to the advancement of learning and living through a collection of memorable forms and public squares.  The site created a suitable initial impact for visitors to Expo 67 and established a tangible starting point to their fair experience.  A giant maple tree furnished with 500 leaves depicted Canadians at work and at leisure.  Katimavik, the inverted pyramid towering over the site, portrayed Canadian vision and achievement.  A rotating theatre unfolded Canadian history.  The main theatre, along with a bandshell and amphitheatre, provided venues for the work of great Canadian artists.
