EXPO Architektur Dokumente: Beiträge zur Weltausstellung EXPO 2000 in Hannover
"People -- Nature -- Technology" -- this is the motto for Expo 2000, opening in Hanover on June 1st, 2000. One hundred and fifty years after the first World Exhibition in London's Crystal Palace, which still paid tribute to the unsullied optimism about progress that marked the beginning of industrialization, Expo 2000 architectural projects are designed to take issue with urgent global questions about technology as we stand on the threshhold of the twenty first century. This book is a preview to the exhibition, presenting the central themes and projects that will be part of Expo 2000. This lavishly illustrated first volume includes interviews and essays about new buildings erected by the Deutsche Messe AG in Hanover, as well as individual examples of Expo architecture and details of the open-air planning for the trade fair and exhibition site.
