Kennedy Center plaza back on the table?
DC Metrocentric reports that the Kennedy Center is again exploring the idea of building a public plaza and buildings over the "ramp spaghetti" that separate it from Foggy Bottom. Congress reallocated the plaza's funding to Alaskan highways in 2005, but the climate may be right for another try.
Update: Looking at that model, the fountain looks cool, but it would probably create another failed public space that's stately but empty. How about some grass and benches, and some cafes in those new buildings along the sides, so that residents of the area or office workers at the State Department can sit and eat lunch?
