"When visitors to the nation's capital embark on a day of museum visits at the National Mall, the most striking building in their midst is undoubtedly the Smithsonian Castle. Its iconic architecture has come to symbolize the Smithsonian. Today the Castle is both central administration building for the entire Smithsonian Insititution and the public doorway to all of its museums and galleries. But in years past it housed the families of the head of the Smithsonian at the same time that it served as research offices for far-flung explorations and as space for collections exhibition and restoration.

Representing the work of major architects, each building evokes a specific time in history: the mid-19th-century turreted Castle, the sky-reflecting mid-century modern Air and Space Museum, and the golden, undulating, 21st-century American Indian Museum."--Jacket
