The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial will be placed on a 4.5-acre site astride Maryland Avenue in front of the headquarters of the Department of Education. Commemorating one of the country’s most famous and popular military heroes, and one of its most respected presidents, the memorial will fashion new public realm open space on the Maryland Avenue corridor.
New additions to the inventory of important cultural sites in a nation’s capital become part of what every citizen or visitor will experience. Memorial-making in Washington, DC is an art and a science, and invariably involves patience, hard work, and the careful handling of a process of approvals and decision-making. Our planners, project managers and landscape architects have been deeply involved in this memorial process since its inception, aiding both Frank Gehry and Partners and the Eisenhower Memorial Commission in navigating the intricacies of the review and approvals process, but also as experts in the urban design and planning of modern Washington D.C..
