TO OPEN THE LOBBY TO THE STREET two side box otticel were torn out and the central column stripped down to the minimum, with the result that there is now 80 feet of clear opening (left) from the street to the lobby as against the lormer (above) 45 feet. Box oHice is around the center column.



TO ELIMINATE THE GOTHIC ARCHITECTURE ot the lobby (above and below). a dome containing a spiral indirect-lighting cove, starting trom the center of the dome to the outer rim and continuing at the center down a structural column, was designed (right and bottom right). The box ottice is anchored to the central column, This location is ideal from the standpoint of design and. operation. The box office is ample tor two cashiers and for the manager checking cashiers in and out without interfering with the sale of tickets. The entrance doors simulate a glass screenelmown as the Wanhein screen&iving maximum vision into the inner lobby. The doors are of highly polished glass and hung in narrow non-ferrous frames. The floor is of non-slip terrazzo in a pattern indicating traffic lanes from the sidewalk to the entrance doors. The lighting of the lobby is accomplished with floodlights recessed into the ceiling.
