Re:
A Builciing to House the Atlc.=mta Cyclorar:i.a
Dear Jack:
!-
Before any co:nprehensive or intelligent plc.nning can be done, a Progr2...rn. must
be prepared. Horr:1:J.l l;f the Oimer prepares the Prozrat.i. T'nis is given to the Architect at the very start of the project and forms the basis for all future planning.
Since a Progr2.l7l. has not been prepared, we are in 2. position to help prepare this
Program.
The Progr21!1 should fully set forth but not be li'Tii ted to the follm-d.ng:
1.
All activities and functions to be carried out in building.
2.
Consideration of complete program for viewing of painting
to determine exact sequence of events and movement of
crowds.
J.
Atmosphere and mood desired to be created in various areas,
4. Nature of 2.nd. list of a.1 1 items to be displayed in museum.
5. Circulation and functional r elationships.
6.
Special effects desired.
7.
Crowd movement and handling.
8.
Location of building.
9.

10.
Or i ent ation of building.

G:mer2.l psychol ogy of building and s etting.

Decisions concerning special consultants .
Since this Program will be a joint effort between the O,mer and Archi tec ts, it
logically follows t hat much time and cooperation will be required of all parties
concerned.
It is difficult to estimate the time r equired to prepare this Prograi~ due to
the uniqueness of the proj ect; however , we f eel that this could be accomplished in ·
one month ' s .time of concentrat ed effort.
I n order for the P2.:c~-cs D3partn ent to t ac~e ma:d.I'lw-ri advantage of t..h.ei-r mm
persori.nel tm-rc1.:-cd. 1-:e Bpin~ the cost of the ?rogr2.m Development dmm, we p~·o:pose· to

archi tectura], firms ·would be involved, the hourly rate would be $12. 00 t,imes a
factor of 2. 75 to co·rer overhead and profit. Should the Program take longer tha n
anticipated., we further propose to guarantee a 1113.ximum charge of $7,500. 00. P..fter
the Program is written and c1.pproved and we have signed the contract for the normal
architectv,ral work , then u e propose to credit one-half of any funds paid on the
Program toward paj71nen-t, of the regular archi tectu.-ral fee.

Since certain consultants will be involved and should be so stated in t.h.e
Architeci;,ural' Bontract, we plan to d.N.w up the Architectural Contract after the
Program is ·written.
We would like to immediately start work as soon as this is approved.
need is your approval olii the enclosed copy of this letter .
