Dreaming of Space

Hello! Clearly I’m not much of a blogger… sorry!  But recently I visited a truly amazing place which inspired me to share a few (very few) words and shots here – a (slightly) more permanent remembrance than instagram 😏.

A sneak peak inside the Grand Hall of the New York Hall of Science was one of the Open Access highlights of the annual Open House New York weekend, held on October 11-12 this year (2014).  The Hall was designed by Wallace K. Harrison in 1964 for the 1964-65 World’s Fair, and is one of few remaining buildings from then.  Influenced by the Space Age, it has 100ft high walls, with no corners or straight walls.  It showed films on space exploration for the Fair, and was fittingly revived for Björk’s first US Biophilia concerts in 2012.
