The Unisphere is one of the few surviving elements of the second New York World's Fair held at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens in 1964-5. The massive structure was built to signify the Fair's theme of 'Peace Through Understanding' and now also serves as a memorial to the event itself. This image was taken as part of doctoral research that investigates the long-term material traces of mega events both in New York and London.
