If you scan the Exposition plan from west to east from this spot, here is what you will see.

We are now inside the formal plan of the Exposition, where every building, fountain, statue, flagpole,
shrub and flower bed have been deliberately placed to contribute the whole effect. What stands out immediately
are the red roofs contrasting with the blue sky. All buildings without domes have what appear to be
traditional roof tiles used in Mexico and the southwest. And the buildings don’t have white walls,
but are tinted in colors ranging from a warm orange to pale yellow to the gleaming ivory of the great Electric Tower.
