ANACOSTIA FOR ALL
"A comprehensive and inclusive design proposal for the local community and ecosystem of poplar point in the Anacostia neighborhood."
"...a new type of land use that combines public, institutional and open space land use into one, accommodating the existing wetland, a future community college and developments at Poplar Point."
RESILIENT LANDSCAPE, RESILIENT PEOPLE
ANACOSTIA WATERFRONT PARK
"The design integrates development zones with a park area, orchestrating views to frame the newly inserted programs, while also connecting the neighborhood with the park in order to provide a better quality of life."
