    Iranian Pavilion

    I was just on the D23 website and read an interview with Harper Goff. At the end of the article they stated the following:

    "Today he is back at WED working on the German and Iranian Pavilions for EPCOT World Showcase."

    Interesting.

    It appears to be a re-print of an article in "Wed-Way" from June 10, 1977. It would be good for the D23 folks to include the orginial print date if, indeed, this is a re-publication of an older article.

    Harper Goff passed away March 3, 1993.

    Iran was being planned but when the revolution began and US/Iranian relations broke down, they scrapped an Iran Pavillion. Harper Goff went on to work on another classic that did come to fruition: Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory.
