CORONA — Some of the best and brightest ideas for the New York State Pavilion site will be featured in an upcoming exhibit at the Queens Museum.
"Pavilion Futures" opens Aug. 5 and will highlight some of the suggestions submitted in the New York State Pavilion Ideas competition, which launched this spring.
The contest, from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and People for the Pavilion with support by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, asked people to dream up plans for the building built for the 1964-1965 World's Fairs.
They received around 250 ideas from around the world, ranging from wild to practical plans for the crumbling structure.
But the program also helped bring more awareness to the site, which had for years been mostly just a marker along the city's highways.
Recent interest from community groups, and a documentary, helped bring the landmark back into the spotlight.
The exhibit, which runs through Aug. 28, will highlight the winners as well as the months-long engagement with the community.
The "fan favorite" was "Tent of the Future" designed by Houiji Ramzi of Saint Etienne, France — which includes solar panels above the site, fitness trails and observatories.
The other winners will be announced in early August, officials said.
