Expo 92, Then & Now

The Expo 92 site is a truly fascinating place (that’s why it was the subject of my first ever blog post) but it gets even better once you see pictures of what it was like during the event itself. Some of these pictures still look futuristic!

Photographs can say more than words sometimes, therefore I decided to do my own Then & Now photo collection of the Expo 92 site. Here it is:

The large canopy of the French Pavilion [8]
Unfortunately, the best old pictures I could find are aerial ones that I can’t currently reproduce from the same viewpoints. One can still see the difference though.

I will keep updating this Then & Now gallery (Last updated: 02.11.2016).
