Architects to propose re-design of deteriorating Tidal Basin on National Mall

Five landscape architectural firms have been retained to envision a redesign of the National Mall Tidal Basin, which is a crumbling focal point of the mall.

“The National Mall Tidal Basin embodies freedom, perseverance, and democratic values, and it is a place where people come together from around the country and around the world to celebrate these ideals. That is why we must bring our best innovation and ingenuity to meet the challenges it is facing,” said Katherine Malone-France, chief preservation officer of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “It is with great excitement that we can today announce the world-class talent coming together to protect and re-imagine this iconic landmark for future generations.”
