A short jaunt across the river from the narrow medieval streets of Seville is a neighborhood dotted by decaying remnants of its futuristic world’s fair. Interspersed with science and tech company headquarters and the odd government building, the rusting reminders of the exposition provide a poignant juxtaposition between the old and new.
Organized 500 years after Columbus landed on the shores of the New World, the Universal Exposition of Seville (known as Expo ‘92) was themed “The Age of Discovery.” More than 100 nations participated in the event, which drew more than 40 million visitors to the 215-hectare site.
