Facts

  • The designer and executive architect on this project was Gordon Bunshaft of SOM's Washington office.
  • Most of the central courtyard is occupied by a large elevated circular pond with a powerful fountain set off-center, which periodically changes height.
  • The structure is elevated atop four massive concrete piers; visitors walk under the elevated structure and enter through the courtyard.
