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.
