Excerpt from Preliminary Summary Report: 1976 International Exposition and New Community

The pervasive trend of recent expositions has been toward more universal and thematic content versus individual exhibitionism and toward permanent reuse versus inflexible single use of temporary facilites. Seattle's l962 pro gram provided permanent structures and the site for a 72 acre urban civic center. Most recently, Expo 67 left Montreal a modern transportation sys tem, an island complex with permanent housing and inaugurated the sophisticated use of advanced audio and visual devices to explore the uni versal implications of Man and His World. The coming Osaka Exposition promises further advances with provision of a theme to reconcile Progress and Harmony for Mankind, a major structure as a framework for theme exhibits, oh-site housing and greater integration of audio-visual commun ication techniques as a means of extending the experience of the participant.
