“This pavilion presents Man and Color – an adventure in color motion and sound. The exterior of the pavilion is round, with 112fins painted in a spectrum of vivid colors surrounding the circular steel frame. Entering the pavilion, the visitor is carried away by a world of moving colours. Using a completely unique process, this remarkable structure actually places one inside a kaleidoscope. The show proceeds through a 12 minute “day” from sunrise to nightfall, during which one experiences the emotional, psychological and even physical effects of color.” - Official Guide, Expo 67, 1967.

Kaleidoscope, Postcard, Expo 67

“An all-Canadian concept and design, Kaleidoscope was created by the University of Waterloo’s Institute of Design and the Toronto industrial design firm of Morley Markson and Assosciates. The pavilion is dedicated to color in daily life, and dramatizes how chemistry through color, contributes to the excitement of life. Charming guides, all former “Miss Canada” contestants, escort visitors.”
- Official Guide, Expo 67, 1967.
