Kodak
Pavilion
 
In the design of the Kodak Pavilion, Will Burtin has succeeded in creating a building that is an unescapable focal point of the Fair grounds.
 
The pavilion tower, surmounted by five of the world's largest color prints, is bathed by 1,200,000 watts of illumination day and night, and rises more than 80 feet above the fairgrounds.
 
The 69,000 square feet of the site is largely protected from the weather but invitingly open, with its display of pictures from every corner of the world . . . the result of more than a million miles of travel by Kodak's picturetaking crews. There are rest spots, and garden spots, a children's area, and two theaters where visitors will enjoy unusual film presentations.
