Arthur Brown, Jr., (1874-1957) designed the Federal Triangle, composed of the Mellon Auditorium-Department of Labor-Interstate Commerce Commission-Mellon Buildings, following the break-up of his firm, Bakewell and Brown in 1927. Between 1927-1932, Brown worked on the design of this vast office building, the largest erected by the US Government before the Pentagon project (also designed by a CA architect, George E. Bergstrom [1876-1955], between 1941-1943). Construction occurred between 1932-1934.
