Project
Southwest Washington DC

On March 27, 2001 students and faculty of MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning presented revitalization proposals for Southwest Washington DC to residents and public officials.  The public meeting, at St. Matthew’s Church, was attended by over 200 people and was the culmination of a semester-long studio sponsored by the DC Government’s Planning Office and the Summit Fund for Washington.  The presentation also marked an important milestone in Mayor Williams and the Office of Planning’s Anacostia Waterfront Initiative.
