|Title||Coliseum interior showing Bubbleator, Seattle World's Fair, 1962 |
|Caption||"Rising in the center of the Coliseum, symbolically just beyond reach and yet within modern man's range of vision, is a structure of cubes bathed in light. Within this cellular formation are the promises of tomorrow....Visitors ascend to the overhead exhibit in a globe-shaped elevator...for a tour of the future."|
Washington State funded the Coliseum and its exhibit "Century 21 - The Threshold and The Threat." Some 3500 interlocking aluminum cubes, shown here, housed audiovisual equipment and exhibit space. The elevator, called the Bubbleator, can be seen in the center.
The building is now Key Arena.
