What travelers say:

The San Francisco Art Palace, built in 1915 for Panama's Pacific Exposition, is gradually abandoned and turned into a ruined building. It was not until 1962 that the famous German architect Mabeck redesigned it and renovated it, which made it a second youthful beauty. The palace of art, called the Palace of Art, did not display a single piece of art in the building. Art lies in the building itself. The Art Palace is a domed hall with arches and stone pillars. In the Art Palace, engineers built it with simple building materials (a mixture of plaster and fiber) because it was considered a temporary building for the Expo. On the art preservation day of October 1915, the people who supported the preservation of the palace collected 33,000 signatures and raised $350,000 to rebuild the palace and use permanent materials. The palace that should have been demolished was preserved in opposition to San Francisco residents Come on.
