"A conception by Hugh Ferriss, a noted New York artist, of how the Ford Exhibition building now being erected at the Chicago World's Fair will look at night in its blaze of light. The building is nine hundred feet long and ten stories in height at its center. It faces upon a five acre park fronting Lake Michigan. Albert Kahn of Detroit is the architect, and Walter Dorwin Teague of New York, the industrial designer, is in charge of the interior display."
