National Mall

The National Mall is a national treasure that plays a central role in the life of the D.C. community and the nation. While the historic 1791 L’Enfant Plan and later enhancements of the 1902 McMillan Plan established a visionary program for developing this public space for the nation’s capital, subsequent fragmented government oversight and piecemeal planning continues to undermine the development of a coherent and environmentally sustainable program.

This panel of activists, policy makers, architects, and urban designers discussed the challenges today in rising above jurisdictional interests and creating a discerning plan for the Mall that advances an effective creative vision for the 21st century.
