Futurama '64 One

Future City > World's Fair City

In 1964, General Motors revisited the future with Futurama II at the New York World's Fair of that year. This time around the world already had loads of Modernist architecture, multilane highways, but no aerodromes floating in oil, so GM decided to make a Futurama for the Space Age. That meant lots of plastic, googie-type curves, and exotic environments, such as here where we learn that living underwater was just a deep breath away.

It was also a bit more fun, because the predictions about future cities were just that much more out there.
