Abstract:
The roof of the main building of the Eastman Kodak Pavilion at the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair consists of a free-form shell covering a 60,000 sq ft area. The shell has undulating surfaces, not definable geometrically, and is penetrated by a number of large openings. Construction of the shell and testing and control proce-dures of lightweight concrete are discussed. Brief mention is made of those design features which affected the construc-tion of the shell.
