Only two things wrong: Most of the building is gone, and there are other structures and some inappropriate landscaping within view of the artifact. The loss of this building is one of the great tragedies of 20th century architecture.

It never occurred to me before, probably because the entrance was so deeply embraced by the wings containing the rooms, but the entrance fa├žade seems to have had its origins in the project for Harold McCormick in a most general arrangement of the principal masses.
