What happened to the large facilities built at the internatoinal World's Fairs? In this exhibition you can see a chronological tour of the emblematic structures.
Photographer Jade Doskow continues her series “Lost Utopias”, which reflects the end of famous buildings such as the Atomium in Brussels, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the New York State Pavilion in Queens. These constructions had a clear objective at the time, but not an urban planning for the future, and now they are neglected and forgotten, except for those that have become tourist attractors. In the exhibition you can see several photographs over the years of these eleven icons.
