The Pedestrian Gate was the first architectural work to be incorporated into a new building, rather than an existing or historical edifice. The ceremonial portal was intended to respond to the massiveness of the stone museum, designed by architect Malcolm Holzman.
The motorized vehicular gate with a hidden pedestrian access door. The gate slides open from right to left. The crenellations on the front of the decorative panels reflect light and shade in patterns similar to those made by the rusticated stone blocks of the surrounding wall.
