World’s Fair 50: Looking back to the future
As the ultimate showcase for global culture and innovations of tomorrow, the 1964 World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows in Queens, New York introduced over 51 million visitors to the future with modern-age marvels like touch-tone phones, Belgian waffles and the world’s earliest computers. The IBM Pavilion, designed by design demigods Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, was one of the fair’s most popular attractions. And all this week, IBMblr is going retro to celebrate the fair in all its vintage greatness.
