Inside the Hall of Science, Exposition visitors view dramatic action exhibits of industries closely related to the basic sciences. The building comprises superb examples of modern architecture. It is U-shaped with two arms reaching down to a sparkling lagoon, and enclosing a court of three acres. In the center of its upper terrace is a circular well, forming the base of a court colorful with pools, fountains and flower-gardens."
