From Looking back at Tomorrow to the exciting possibilities of life on a fertile desert, floating city or space colony, Horizons presented THE most optimistic and forward-thinking display in the history of themed entertainment. Before the debut of its serialized Vista, we pause to pay tribute the greatest and most important of all deceased attractions.
Designer’s Note: Because of its historical complexity, the treatment of Horizons was always intended to be different from the other pavilions of Future World. Inspired by the shuttle mission plaques found at the exit of the Shuttle Launch Experience at the Kennedy Space Center, this edition is the only “gold” Pavilion it the otherwise “White Hot” pavilion line-up signifying its loss.
This special edition was designed (almost) simultaneously as the “standard” edition so it was tricky to restrain myself on some design choices in order to preserve its inherently somber tone.
