Its designers were Frank Phillips Allen, Jr. (1881-1943), and Thomas B. Hunter, with construction and opening in 1914. On the left beyond the west entrance arch (at the right) are the California Building (now San Diego Museum of Man) and the California Tower, also built for the 1915 Exposition, with the Administration Building just to the left and in front of the entrance arch.
