Unknown pavilion - any ideas who it was for?

But these are mere shots in the dark. Does anyone have any idea what building this might have been proposed for. Thanks! GaryH

I'm guessing a state pavilion or a slight possibility it's an idea for an outdoor WF map, with an info booth.

It looks like the people are looking at some kind of relief map with landscaping - perhaps a scale model of the fair?

And it would definitely NOT still be there today!

Map with low retaining wall in front of it.
Roof jutting out and upward at an angle.
Now if the artist had drawn in Mastro Pizza right behind it, that would nail it!

I guess it COULD be the same one...

I did think about this as a possible early sketch for what turned into the domed Assembly Pavilion/Winston Churchhill Pavilion, but it doesn't have any qualities the Assembly Building would have - rows of seats, stage, etc. And there's that map and info stand that indicate another use. Pictures of the original idea for the Assembly Building certainly do resemble this one, that's for sure, but even the originals had it as an enclosed space, I believe. I can't get to my WF reports at the moment to check that out for sure. Or maybe they took this design, scrapped the building's usage as indicated in the drawing, and turned it into the early idea for the Assembly Building. I'm still just guessing, though.
