General Motors Futurama Building - New York World’s Fair 1964-65

The nearly 230,000-square-foot General Motors Futurama building is a landmark for Fair visitors. Behind the canopy, the main portion of the 680-foot-long building houses the exciting 1,700-foot Futurama ride. The building terminates in a dramatic domed pavilion, in which current General Motors cars and other products will be displayed. On top of the pavilion, rising the equivalent of eight stories above the ground, is a 40-foot-wide sculptured indicator which revolves, flashing the time and temperature in large illuminated numerals.
