Three New Looks on the National Mall

The National Mall here in Washington, D.C., is indeed a national treasure, but it’s one that is in some disrepair. The Trust for the National Mall has just held a competition to design three new sections in oft-neglected areas on the Mall. The winners were announced Thursday (May 3 2012).

I spoke to Caroline Cunningham, president of the Trust for the National Mall, and Don Stastny, the competition manager, on Thursday about the winning designs. You can see the entries, the winning designs and find more information at the website of the Trust for the National Mall.
