Abstract:

Architects and designers from around the world designed the exposition buildings on 76 city blocks (635 acres), which allowed for the hundreds of buildings that were built. A strict eight color pastel theme had to be adhered to, to provide complete unity. A similar style in the 1500 sculptures and murals also enhanced the fair's theme, as well as the 30,000 imported plants, trees, bushes and flowers, including 70,000 rhododendrons. Landscape architect John McLaren (the designer of Golden Gate Park) was in charge of the exposition's landscaping, and worked closely with the many different architects involved.
