The cross section of the Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic Site and Interpretive Center serves as a gateway to the site surrounding the house where Walt Whitman was born. The facility admits controlled daylight and segregates hot air for exhaust during swing seasons, minimizing the need for air conditioning. The use of exposed structure dramatically reduced the need for applied architectural finishes while establishing a vocabulary that is sympathetic to the early nineteenth century birthplace house. Exhibits on the wall form a reverse time line, beginning with the mature Whitman who is most familiar and leads back through his formative years to his birth point.
