Architecture: National Mall – Union Square Proposal by Diller Scofidio + Renfro & Hood Design: “..at the foot of the capital building, this site is positioned at the intersection of major urban axes generated by the city’s formal l’enfant plan and the informal mcmillan plan. the overlap of design styles derived from the french beaux arts and english pastoral are to be contrasted with a nature reverent setting which merges natural gardens and with the historic marsh to create an integrated monumental space for large-scale gatherings..”  Hmmm…
