The aim of the first Asiatic World Exhibition was to pay tribute to but at the same time cast a critical eye on technological progress, and not merely to celebrate it unreservedly. The 77 participating nations were asked to contribute discussion topics on the subject of a peaceful future for mankind. With the central area of symbols designed by Kenzo Tange, the Expo exhibition site provided something to provoke ideas for discussion topics. Under a 300-metre long, space-bearing structure, the evolution of man was depicted and Japanís leading scientists and architects gave us a view of the world of tomorrow. Equally trail-blazing was Tangeís design of the Expo exhibition site with its intricate transport system to cope with the masses of visitors.
