Pan-American Exposition of 1901

Pergola Buildings1

BY JOHN M. CARRÈR, of Carrère and Hastings

IN the four Pergola Buildings of the Exposition a unique treatment has been applied, making a structure of heavy character look light and arbor-like from the exterior. This effect has been secured by trellis verandas on the front and back. The Pergola Buildings are adapted to serve either as exhibit buildings or as restaurants.
