UNION OF AFRICAN STATES — The New York World's Fair (1964-1965) ‘Pavilion of Africa’, designed by Tom John and architects Kahn & Jacobs, claimed to display the future vision of Africa.
Rather what took form bore no reference to the vision of Africa discussed six months prior at the Organisation of African Unity Conference (May 1963) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
This new proposal for the 'Pavilion of Africa', stages the Organisation of African Unity Conferenceperceived through the eyes of Kwame Nkrumah with an recovered prelude to his 'Unite now or perish'' speech, describing the political impact of a unified African currency.
