Abstract
The site is located across the P. St. Bridge,

before one enters DuPont Circle. This is an ideal

site for investigating the space of the inbetween.

The site is situated between the small scale

fabric of Georgetown and the moumental scale of

D.C. This site is also situated between nature

(Rock Creek Park) and the urban realm. This place

must function as a significant portal into and out

of the city. This concept of space precedes

program, through an intense investigation of the

site. Creating relationships and responding to

the site, a sense of place is developed by becoming

a player in its local context. Through this

process, two architectonic elements arise; the

wall and the tower. The wall functions like a

vessel holding in the city, as well as, a fortress

protecting the city. The tower acts as a beacon

of light or node appearing above the canopy. The

program is then introduced and informed by these

spatial concepts. An intense intertwining and

rediscovery of space, structure, and program occurs

through this process.
