One Community, One Read - World’s Columbian Exposition 3D Historical Reconstruction

The World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 was a landmark event in American history. Held in Chicago, this seminal world’s fair is widely studied across a range of disciplines including architecture, urban planning, women’s studies, religious studies, and art history. The reconstruction model is both a work-in-progress and actively used as a testbed for educational applications for interactive computer technology.

Learn how the 1893 Chicago World’s Fairgrounds have been brought to life through a 3-D historical reconstruction. For the last 18 years, Lisa Snyder, Ph.D. UCLA has been bringing to life the bygone glory of the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893.  She is a modeling and visualization expert with UCLA’s Institute for Digital Research and Education.
