The building is composed of a 162-foot tower. Two solid geometric shapes containing exhibit spaces cantilever from the tower. The tower also serves to anchor a monumental, triangular-shaped glass tent supported by immense tubular steel bow trusses. The glass tent is anchored along its wide base at the public plaza to provide the main entry facade. Approximately 150,000 square feet of building space houses approximately 50,000 square feet of exhibition area in addition to administrative areas, library/archival areas, large public circulation areas, and support functions. >br/>
