Paris International Food Fair
Design: Gordon Andrews
Date: 1967

Gordon Andrews was contracted by the Department of Trade to design an exhibition space for the 1967 Paris International Trade Fair. In a highly unusual move, the Department flew Andrews to Paris to supervise the installation. Writing in Architecture in Australia, April 1967, Andrews said; ‘The job was a problem in that it was necessary to show that Australia was sophisticated and could produce an abundance of exportable foodstuff – boomerangs and koala bears had no place in this exercise. It was essential to make the stand itself as attractive as possible to bolster up the poor quality package designs which had to be displayed. All graphics, valarium fabric and photo blow-ups were produced in Australia. Construction was carried out very efficiently by Atelier Chatet in Paris’. Andrews was assisted by Harry Williamson.
