Constructing Tomorrow #5

30 days before opening of the “Newest Wonder of the World,” The EPCOT Center News Briefs provided daily progress reports for the many facets in bringing 21st Century to life in 1982.

Click the News Brief to go indepth into the latest installment of Constructing Tomorrow.


Absurdly Obscure

As one of the least known and even lesser appreciated attractions in theme park history, Universe of Energy is not exactly the best of all topics to cover musically nor does it provide much in the way of quality material. Nevertheless, the Future World Soundtrack Series continues in the face of begrudging compromise, the challenges of lacking resources, and promise of tomorrow. Click on the image below go behind the scenes in the making of the latest FWSS release and a small glimpse into its future…


Theme Park Therapy

On the eve of Walt Disney World’s 40th birthday it is also last year of Epcot’s tumultuous twenties. As we approach the park’s third decade let us pause to reflect on the problems faced by the Community of Tomorrow from a completely unique perspective. For this one, I’ve also consulted my good friend and long time associate, Artist, Lecturer, Scientist, and the world’s the foremost expert on just about everything; Professor Ludwig Von Drake.
Head over to LEGACY or click on the image to find out just what "he" has to say about our perpetually troubled Geosphere.

Special Note: To lighten the mood of this otherwise very serious discussion on theme park evolution and physiology, it might be a good idea to get into von Drake’s head space by absorbing some of his best moments here.

VISTA SERIES - The Wonders of Light

From nutrition to medicine from exercise to conception, the Wonders of Life celebrates the entire human experience. Inspired by the pavilion’s festive color scheme the Vista is set against a background of teal and dark blue with gold and red light beams spiraling together to form abstractions of DNA.

Designer’s Note: The pavilion’s DNA Tower & Dome Line Art is heavily inspired by the similarly shaped Progressland Logo for the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
