Palaces and Courts of the Exposition eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 65 pages of information about Palaces and Courts of the Exposition.

The Orient is strongly marked by the domes, the minaret suggestions, the elephants, and minor details.

It is an Arabian-Nights-Tale — not a thousand and one nights, but two hundred and eighty-eight.

Siena marble is used mainly at entrances and for pedestals.  The travertine is pinkish, grey and cream.  Doorways in shadow are of lattice green.  Flag-poles are colored Spanish red.  Lighting standards are green, ochre, or eucalyptus blue.  Banners are ochre and cadmium.

The world has never seen such an Occidental-Oriental harmony as in this Exposition.

The traditions of the olden days are so strongly worked into these palaces and courts that one feels more than he can tell when wandering in this world of beauty; and we the laymen owe a debt of gratitude to the architects, sculptors, painters, horticulturists, financiers, engineers and the workmen who have given us this dream city of 1915.
