    The Century 21 Exposition took place between April 21 and October 21, 1962 and is also known as the Seattle World's Fair.Also known as the Home of Living Light "The unique Home of Living Light for Tomorrow, the Douglas Fir Plywood Association Exhibit which dramatizes the many possibilities of a completely new approach to home construction, is located on Freedom Way, at the north end of the Boulevards of the World ... The walls are made of continuous wood paneling which, like corrugated packing paper, is rigid in one direction and flexible in the other. The results are walls that can take any shape and still support the required roof loads. The shapes they take in the Home of Living Light are interlocking ovals and circles." (Century 21 Exposition. (1962). Official Guide Book, Seattle World's Fair 1962. Seattle: Acme Publications. p. 47)Filed in: Seattle--Century 21--Grounds. less
