In 1989 George Bush set forth NASA’s objectives—Build Space Station Freedom. Get back to the moon. For the next century, a manned mission to Mars. A+A was one of five national firms invited to compete for the opportunity to represent this story at the US Pavilion at Expo 92 in Seville–in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Columbus’s expedition to the New World.

Upon winning the competition, A+A proceeded to develop a multimedia adventure within the Barton Meyers building concept that took visitors on a voyage through space and time— Station Freedom, the Moon, and finally, Mars.

Unfortunately NASA was not able to fund their participation at the world’s fair, where more than 40 million visitors attended over a six month run. Excerpts of this concept were later developed for the Paris Air Show in 1992.
