MAN THE PRODUCER

Located in the middle of Île Notre-Dame, the impressive Man the Producer pavilion is one of the largest at Expo 67. In the first part of the pavilion, visitors learn about humankind's relationship with the earth's abundant natural resources. An audiovisual presentation and an exhibit on the elements found in the physical environment are also on display. The extraction, transformation and use of these materials are examined, especially in the production of energy and how this affects our lives.

 

The second part of the pavilion focusses on the concept of progress. It introduces recent technological advances and presupposes their impact: for example, factory automation could lead to upheavals in production and the labour force. Progress is also represented by a modern computer-automated assembly line, although older practical and very important inventions, like the wheel and steam engine, are also represented.


The third and final part of the pavilion, called Man in Control, explores how humans use the technology they develop. Are they able to use this technology wisely while maintaining some control over it to the benefit of humanity?
