“To be civilized is to be urban.”

Process—————8 May 2013

This installation explores the research and design proposals in Studio Twenty Seven Architecture's recent publication Southwest: (A)Mending L'Enfant's Plan. The Studio delves into Southwest's history as a site of urban experimentation and projects a vision of its future. Redevelopment of Southwest requires thoughtful consideration of forces of change that are just becoming apparent. Our research and exploration is a process intended to encourage all stakeholders in Southwest and the District to reconsider old grand plans and question the many different visions for the future. Our propositions are not discrete objects, like the city itself they will continue to change, update, and re-frame. 

We invite you to explore our installation at Filter Coffeehouse (Foggy Bottom) and engage in our ongoing conversation about Washington, DC's urban evolution.
