Pickwick Dam. Reception room of a powerhouse which is somewhat difficult to reach (therefore, supplementary visitors' facilities were developed at the opposite end of the dam in separate buildings). Rest rooms, elevators, stairway, overlook balcony, and control room can be viewed either through glass doors from this room or from large plate glass openings of the overlook balcony. Terrazzo floor and base, burlap covered plaster walls, acoustic plaster ceiling. Graphic display is in a shallow wall niche between control room doors; top line shows three functions of projects in cross-sectional perspectives; photographs elaborate on TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) program; map of valley is  applied to specially constructed movable table
