The Studio publishes a book on Southwest DC entitled “(A)Mending L’Enfant’s Plan.” The two hundred fifteen-page illustrated publication provides a comprehensive history of urban development in this quadrant, from the introduction of L’Enfant’s plan in 1791 to the opening of Nationals’ Stadium in 2008. The document traces Studio TwentySeven Architecture’s research into the evolution of Southwest DC using the metaphor of Haute Couture (French for “high sewing” or “high dressmaking”). The book’s final chapter introduces specific architectural interventions to reconnect the quadrant to the rest of the city. Those new interventions include a ferry terminal along the mouth of the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers and the return of Fort McNair to the public domain.
