The Palace of Fine Arts was designed by Bernard Maybeck and constructed for 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. It is one of the few surviving structures from the Exposition, and the only one still situated on its original site. Built’ around a small artificial lagoon, The Palace of Fine Arts is composed of a wide, 1100 foot pergola, an arch formed by rows of Corinthian columns framing a wide walkway, around a central rotunda situated by the water. Ornamentation includes Bruno Louis Zimm’s three repeating panels around the entablature of the rotunda representing "The Struggle for the Beautiful" symbolizing Greek culture, while Ulric Ellerhusen supplied the weeping women atop the colonnade and the sculptured frieze and allegorical figures representing Contemplation, Wonderment and Meditation. The underside of the Palace rotunda’s dome features eight large insets, which originally contained murals by Robert Reid.

The Palace, one of ten palaces at the heart of the Exhibition–the others being the palaces of Education, Liberal Arts, Manufactures, Varied Industries, Agriculture, Food Products, Transportation, Mines and Metallurgy, and Machinery–was designed to to look like a Roman or Greek ruin. While most of the exposition was demolished, it survived due to the efforts of the Paaace Preservation League. For a time, the Palace housed art exhibits, and during the Great Depression, W.P.A. artists were commissioned to replace the decayed Robert Reid murals on the ceiling of the rotunda. From 1934 to 1942, it was home to eighteen lighted tennis courts. During World War II it was requisitioned by the military for storage of trucks and jeeps. Starting in 1947, the hall was used as a city Park Department warehouse, a telephone book distribution center, a flag and tent storage depot, and a temporary Fire Department headquarters.

By the 1950s, the Palace’s structure had in fact fallen into ruins and in 1964 it was demolished, with only the steel structure left standing. The buildings were reconstructed in permanent, light-weight, poured-in-place concrete, and steel I-beams were hoisted into place for the dome of the rotunda. The decorations and sculpture were reconstructed and the only changes were the absence of the murals in the dome, two end pylons of the colonnade, and the original ornamentation of the exhibit hall. In 1969 the former Exhibit Hall became home to the Exploratorium interactive museum, and in 1970 also became the home of the 1,000 seat Palace of Fine Arts Theater.

Washington Team Building and Fine Wine Adventure

September 6th, 2012

Looking for an outstanding team building program while in Washington DC? Does your team enjoy dining experiences but you want to try something new, something different than Cooking Team Building or your usual group dinner? Well, here is a program that fits that bill. Washington DC and its restaurants, with their penchant for fine food and drink, make a perfect location for team building programs based on wine appreciation. One of the most outstanding of these is an activity offered in Washington called The Wine Maker’s Challenge.

The Wine Maker’s Challenge team building program is designed to take place in a private room of a hotel or restaurant — and Washington has some of the best and most interesting venues anywhere. The Capitol Grill with its wonderful location on Pennsylvania Ave, or the historic Willard Hotel, right across from the White House, are examples of the great venue possibilities for a program utilizing wine. Also the Caucus Room, which earned the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence might be a “tasty” match for holding a wine themed program.

How does this unique team building program actually work? It starts when the participants are given an interesting scenario. Teams are informed that their company has received a gift from a grateful client – a famous comedian. The gift is a vineyard, which the comedian has bequeathed to their company. There is a tricky little condition, though. The company will only inherit the vineyard if team members create a new wine, and market it to a segment of the population with “a highly developed sense of humor”. Everything – from the wine’s name, to the label, to the marketing campaign – must be funny. Otherwise, the inheritance will revert back to the client’s estate.

Going from the business and commerce world of Washington DC to making wine is an unusual transition. However, just like other unusual team building activities, this one works – and very effectively. Adding a dash of humor to corporate team building activities is a great way to get participants to let their hair down and enjoy the exercise because they don’t feel as if they’re in a lecture room.

Like the team building activity above, corporate team building is now leaning towards activities where employees experience and learn at the same time. Human resources practitioners and managers in Washington (and around the country) advocate “experiential team building” as one of the most effective ways to bring out the best in teams. It is believed that, by being directly involved and experiencing an activity, teams will remember that exercise and the lessons learned more than if they were to sit in a room and listen to a lecture. The lessons learned will affect their decisions and attitude, and consequentially improve their productivity.

The Wine Maker’s Challenge in Washington, though it may appear to be entertainment is also a learning vehicle, an experiential team building program. Participants go through an “interactive experience” that stimulates their imagination and puts them in a situation where they have to work together to achieve a common goal. Throw in a bit of humor, and what you’ve got is a very positive and effective learning experience.

Activities such as this one in Washington enable team members to build trust in each other. They get participants collaborating, cooperating, and experiencing success together, as well as learning that healthy risk-taking can be fun. Plus, during the Wine Makers’ Challenge marketing campaign, they might even choose to do some public speaking and a “team” performance and realize that it is actually fun too.

What does wine making have to do with the company’s ability to achieve leadership in the market, and developing employee leadership? It’s the process – not the task. Author Mel Silberman, in his book “The Handbook of Experiential Learning,” says that “Learning can best occur when it offers a new approach, a different mindset.” Team building activities like this program in Washington offer a new experience for the participants and exposure to different ways of thinking as they work with the other members of their team.
