This special installation explores the history of the East Building and its unique site from 1967 until the building's opening in 1978. Highlights include copies of the architect's drawings, photographs, and other archival materials, many never seen before. A three-dimensional model of the West and East Buildings provides additional insight concerning the building's design and relationship to the surrounding city.
