ARCHITECTURE-ARQUITECTURA TODAY: Designing Tomorrow: America's World's Fairs of the 1930s at the National Building Museum.




Celebrating talent, bowing to marketing ingenuity, corralling hope in a brighter future. Phrases that may describe a season of American Idol just as comfortably apply to the world’s fairs held in Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Cleveland, San Francisco, and New York in the 1930s. Considering economic and political distress then and now, Designing Tomorrow: America’s World’s Fairs of the 1930s, at the National Building Museum, couldn’t feel more relevant. The exhibition reminds us that Americans both repeat their mistakes and skillfully invent mood stabilizers and long-view salves for them.
