Science and Education Building, c. 1915

The entry fašade on the right in the above photo was modeled after the Church of San Sebastian in Puebla, Mexico, according to its architect Carleton Winslow. Built for the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in Balboa Park, this wonderful but "temporary" building anchored the northwest corner of the Plaza de Panama for nearly 50 years. It was demolished to make way for the modern west wing of the San Diego Museum of Art.

The reconstructed West Arcade was completed in 2005. The original arcade was an integral part of the Science and Education Building.

Modern structures are out of place on the Prado. Let’s return the Prado to its former glory!
