Horticultural Exhibit New York World’s Fair 1939 Gay and colorful, with bright awnings and grilled gate ways, in the Horticultural Exhibit at the New York World’s Fair 1939. The rotunda of the building resembles a big tent with a peaked roof and the exhibit halls have roofs as gay as the umbrella over the tables in the nearby tea garden. Color is everywhere throughout the five acre area, inside the building is the seasonal flower shows and displays of rare blooms, outside the building is the landscaping and in the gardens are complete planted units. The building was designed by William A. Delano who also planned the gardens and landscaping.
