Building of Dwarfs

When you visit the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California, there is one building that will not go unnoticed. And one of the most infamous buildings in Disney History.

The Michael D.Eisner Building (Team Disney) was completed in 1990, currently houses the boardroom for the Directors of the Walt Disney Company and Bob Iger's (CEO) offices, as well as several other persons of high importance within the Company.

The building was designed by the architect Michael Graves, who also created the Swan and Dolphin Resorts in Walt Disney World and Disney's Hotel New York in Disneyland Paris. It is iconic in the sense that the building's roof is 'held up' by the Seven Dwarfs, from the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs film. Interestingly enough, the film, which was Walt Disney's first feature length animation, provided the Studios with the revenue to buy the Burbank Lot where the Michael D. Eisner Building currently stands.

Originally named the Team Disney Building, it was re-dedicated as the Michael D.Eisner Team Disney building in 2006 to celebrate Eisner's 21-year leadership of the Walt Disney Company.
