New York Times Review of the exhibition


14 June 1936


By H. D

WITH the New York World's Fair ahead of us, the Museum of Modern Art has undertaken a preliminary service to the undertaking by putting on an exhibition of modern exposition architecture. Chiefly consisting of enlarged photographs of buildings and plans of sites, the show is interesting for the comparisons it permits and the partial perspective afforded over architectural developments in such enterprises during the last twenty years.
