# World Expos from the past

I happened to see some pictures (via Archdaily) from various pavilions' construction yesterday for Shanghai Expo 2010 and it made me recall when World Expos were actually synonym with architectural experiments and innovation.
In 1958, Le Corbusier and Xenakis designed the Philips Pavilion for Brussels' Expo
In 1967, Montreal's Expo hosts various innovative buildings designed by Frei Otto (German Pavilion), Moshe Safdie (Habitat67) and Buckminster Fuller (Biosphere).
In 1970, Kisho Kurokawa designed three buildings for Osaka's Expo as metabolist manifestos.

Today, the French pavilion for Shanghai 2010 is pretty representative of the global quality of architecture (as far as the Expo is concerned but maybe also in general): it is drab, conventional and thinks it talks about sustainability because some plants grow (have been plugged) on it... I talk about the French one, but the others are not so interesting either...Heatherwick's British pavilion might be the only one interesting questioning the notion of archive by hosting a giant seed bank.

In the first post of Crab Studio's (see previous post) new blog, Peter Cook evokes the existence of the incredible building that is the Biblioteca Publica of Mexico City by Alberto Kalach. This Mexican Architect seems to have succeed to create a library influenced by both Borges' fantastic atmosphere and Kafka's ambiguous and intriguing fascination for bureaucracy.

You got that certain something
What you give to me
Takes my breath away
Now the word out on the street
Is the devil's in your kiss
If our love goes up in flames
It's a fire I can't resist
I was cryin' when I met you

Oh my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time,
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much,
Are you still mine?
I need your love,
I need your love
God speed your love to me.

The nights are so lonely the days are so sad and
I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I'm missing you
And nobody knows it but me

I carry smile when I'm broken in two
And I'm nobody without someone like you
I'm trembling inside
And nobody knows it but me (yeah)

I believe what you published was very logical. But, think about this, suppose
you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a headline to possibly grab folk's
attention? I mean "# World Expos from the past"
is kinda vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything've got to say.
Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are

problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Today, I went to the beach with my children.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
I had to tell someone!

think about if you added some great pictures or video clips to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics

the most beneficial in its niche. Fantastic blog!

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm
going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
