Project:   A Global Telecommunications Pavilion
Site:        Flushing Meadow, New York

Mr. Takcheng Sze, of Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation is currently taking on the task of designing schematic diagrams for a potential New York World's Fair.  Keep in mind that these are very preliminary drawings, and as Mr. Sze himself has stated, they are likely to change in the near future.  Mr. Sze elaborated that, "the original idea for the building stems from a geodesic dome designed by Richard Buckminster Fuller for Montreal's Expo 1967.  However, the dome presented here is an altered version of the classical one.  Rather than being a complete sphere, this dome corresponds to different factors from around the fair grounds at Flushing Meadow Corona Park.  It is to be shaped with the help of the latest computer and construction technology.  The goal of this design project is to create an icon for New York's World Fair symbolizing how our contemporary technology is opening up a new stage to the future."  Please feel free to email comments about these designs to jbydlak@princeton.edu, and we will be more than happy to pass them along to Mr. Sze.
