Kevin Roche’s S.E.C. Buildings, next to Union Station, Washington,DC

One of Mr. Roche’s most important and iconic buildings is the Ford Foundation (1967), near the United Nations.  Approximately 40 years later, he designs the S.E.C. buildings and he returns to and re-interpets his earlier treatment of the building skin as a three dimensional screen pulling the passerby into — at least visually- the building and the movements of its inhabitants.
