Nuclear Reactor in Plain Sight

Dedicated in 1961, the Nuclear Reactor Building on the University of Washington campus was a showcase for nuclear technology, prominent and with large windows allowing anyone to peek in to see atoms being split. The reactor ran until 1992, but was not removed until 2008.

It's now the More Hall Annex, a historical landmark of brutalist architecture, and a reminder of past attitudes towards nuclear energy.
