The one-of-a-kind State of California office structure in downtown Sacramento known as The Bateson Building – designed and built during Gov.

The distinctive interior of the building, with its overhead skylights and sun louvers to its quartet of unique, tubular “stratification fans” hanging from the atrium ceiling, is shown in this view taken May 15, 2001.
