Seattle architectural firm Kirm Wallace and McKinley collaborated with the engineering partnership Worthington, Skilling, Helle & Jackson to design both the Exhibition Hall and the Playhouse (1961-1962) as an ensemble, joined by a covered colonnade.

The Fine Arts Pavilion, like the Washington State Coliseum of several permanent buildings erected for the Seattle World's Fair, it was known later as the Pacific Northwest Ballet's (PNB) Phelps Center.

The PNB remodeled the Fine Arts Pavilion into the Phelps Center in 1991-1992.
