Pan American Health Organization

The building was designed in a modernist style by Uruguayan architect Roman Fresnedo Siri as a tribute to Le Corbusier, who inspired Siri's other works. Constructed in 1965, the exterior features 29 round bronze seals of the founding nations of the Pan American Health Organization set in black stone. Each medallion is 2.5 feet in diameter and were designed by American sculptor Michael Lantz.
