During the Presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941, the 24,000 civilian and military personnel in Washington, D.C. was spread out among 17 buildings.  Brigadier General Brehon B. Somervell came up with the idea and was then given the task to design and build a building to house the United States Department of Defense in one location.


The five-story reinforced concrete building has five concentric pentagonal rings connected by 10 radial corridors with light wells in between and a 6-acre interior center court.


Completed on January 15, 1943, the Pentagon, located in SE Arlington County, Virginia, is one of the largest office buildings in the world with 3,705,793 square feet of floor space covering 29 acres.  In 1998 renovations were started to modernize the Pentagon and to make the building a more secure structure.


On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, an airplane under the control of terrorists crashed into the Pentagon destroying a portion of the building and killing 125 individuals.  The Pentagon was repaired within a year and a memorial was built on the crash site.
