Broadway—Diagonally Opposite t,uer Block Olin Aluminum in U.S. Fair Building "Instant architecture" is wed iled with saving the day and thousands ol tax dollars lor the United States in its initial entr> into the Australian Internationa Trade Fair which opened in Syd ney on Friday. The instant architecture is in .lie form of a 12,000 square foot U S. pavilion. Parts were rushed from a number of American com panics, none of which had worked ogelher on the project before Pieces were assembled in Aus- ralia and the result is the talk of he Fair, according to Robert Martin Engelbrecht, the archi- ect. There are 37 American companies represented in the exposi- ion. It all started in mid-February vhen the U.S. Department of Commerce signed a contract for he structure with Mr. Engel- irechf, who also designed t h e 'Living Space Research House" or the Century 21 Exposition at leattle. Mr. Ei-£olbrecht, whose cilices ire in New York, said he had on- y one month for the oesign, one month :o fabricate, one rronth to ransport the parts and one month o erect the new building. "And," he added, "Australia ;n't just around the corner, you now." Withstood Difficulties The light (1% pounds per square oot of building surface), crystal- ke (most of the panels are trans- ucent) building withstood a num- er of difficulties including winds up to 65 miles per hour and a loyal Australian sheep show on he site during the height of con- struction. The structure was completed last week. The building itself is made ol aluminum, plywood, translucent panels, vinyl weather strips and redwood trim. Because of its lightness it is aerodynamically designed a n c anchored in concrete; The roof is accordion style and the wa'ls are sawtoothed around -.xisting trees at the Australian site. The entire stru.-ltire is supported and held together by alunu num extrusions supplied by the Nesquehoning, Pa., plant of Olin Mathieson Chemical Corp. Olin extrusions operators worked night and day to produce the aluminum parts. Those parts are based on a beam and clamp system invented by Mr. Engelbrecht. He says it creates an unusually attractive interior view. 40 Feet High Over all, the United States has 22,000 square feet of space for its ixhibition. The theme tower of the United States building is 40 feet high, made of redwood plank and white tubing. The entry plaza is a landscaped court of hexagonal paving areas, and tlier are hexigonal reflecting pools and offices at the entrance. Mr. Engelbrecht said the great cost-saving feature of his build- ng is that it can be disassembled, shipped eonomically to another site and erected again just as easily. The flexibility of the building s such that it can be put on a site that slopes as much as three feet in 200.
