dc.descriptionEast entrance facade of north building, "the church"; detail of tiled dome of one of the open belfry towers; In 1915 this was named the Varied Industries and Food Products Building; renamed the Food and Beverage Building for the 1935 fair, and rebuilt in 1971 as the Casa del Prado. It was conceived as a temporary exhibit building in 1915, so built of plaster and wood. The reconstructed building (architect Richard George Wheeler with Sam Hamill, consulting architect) consists of two separate north and south buildings separated by an open arcaded court. Sculptural details executed by H. R. Schmohl, after Winslow's sketches; the original 1915 decoration was saved by molding it and casting it in concrete with metal reinforcement and with anchoring rods inserted. The cast concrete ornament weighed ten times more than the originals. This demanded that the supporting building be entirely rebuilt in concrete with a sprayed-on, tan-tinted, off-white stucco veneer. Some of the building elements (an annex and apse) were eliminated in the rebuilding. It now houses a theater and club meeting and exhibits rooms.
