Pictures from articles about the Swiss National Exhibition of 1964 in Lausanne from Schweizerische Polierzeitung, the Swiss Construction Foremen Magazine. In issue 4/64 they especially covered the construction of the pavillion of the Swiss Army in detail (pavillion "Wehrhafte Schweiz", most pics and floor plan above) - what could be a better representation of the simultaneity of modernism and cold war than a concrete hedgehog?
Expo 64 was the third Swiss National Exhibition in the 20th century (after 1914 and 39), the last Expo so far took place in 2002.
