Canadian Pavilion, Expo '67 Montreal, Quebec, Canada Designed 1964 with Evans St. Gelais, Ashworth Robbie Vaughan and Williams, Schoeler and Barkham, & Z.M. Stankiewicz The original concept for the Canadian Pavilion at Expo 67 was developed by Arthur Erickson with Jeffrey Lindsay as the structural engineering consultant. It was a large inverted pyramid open to the sky and functioning as a reception area. On it's base individual exhibit areas were capped with smaller pyramids. The proposal went ahead but with such modifications to detail that Arthur Erickson withdrew his name. The pavilion, however, went on to become a symbol of Expo 67. It's large inverted pyramid was called Katimavik, which is the Inuit word for "Gathering Place". The pyramid was nine storeys tall and supported by four columns. The building at its base housed a rotating theatre, which used moving wedge-shaped chambers to bring audiences from one screening to the next, making a complete revolution every half-hour. The smaller linked pyramids at ground level housed the exhibits "The Land of Canada", "The Growth of Canada", and "The Challenge to Canadians, Canada, and the World." The pavilion was located on a 30,285 sq metre lot near the southern end of Notre Dame Island.
