Project Description

Wallace Harrison’s Hall of Science

In the early 1960s the Willet Studio illuminated architect Wallace Harrison’s Hall of Science, designed for the 1964- 1965 World’s Fair with thousands of pieces of faceted blue glass. The ninety-foot serpentine structure is made up of over five thousand two foot by three foot panels pierced with one inch Blenko glass dalles cast into a matrix of reinforced concrete. Designed to give the impression of being in deep space, the primary glass color is blue. More than a dozen shades of blue were used, accented with touches of gold, ruby, green and purple to further intensify the feeling of outer space.
