This week, the Trust for the National Mall opened the exhibition featuring the twelve final design concepts of the National Mall Design Competition in Washington, D.C. The concepts are displayed for public viewing and comment at the Smithsonian Castle and the National Museum of American History.

The submissions, created by ten of the country’s design heavy hitters, re-envision three prominent National Mall locations: Union Square, Sylvan Theater on the Washington Monument Grounds, and Constitution Gardens. The exhibition runs through Sunday, April 15, and the winning designs will be announced in May.
