Federal Area Exhibit Buildings. Built overlooking an imposing lagoon and one of the Fair’s largest fountains, the Federal Building with its twin towers is flanked by eight structures comprising the Hall of Nations where exhibits of more than 60 nations will acquaint the visitor with the arts and industries of all the world. Designed on the classic lines of Greek temples this group provides an imposing terminus to Constitution Mall.
