Expo 64: Children's pavilion

Some images from the Nestlé sponsored children's pavilion at Expo 64, the Swiss National Exhibition 1964 in Lausanne. The playground was apparently based on concepts of the adventure playground. The elegant concrete roof by architect Michel Magnin is among the very few structures from Expo 64 still standing today. The other one is a part of Max Bill's pavilion, now the Théâtre de Vidy.
I'm also posting this because I had the pleasure to write about Expo 64 for the Expo themed new issue of the excellent Modernist magazine. More about that later.
And let's see if I can cram some more posts about Expo64 into the year of its 50th anniversary.
