  • ANACOSTIA PLAN INSTALLATION BURASWORKS * OPEN URBAN DESIGN STUDIO WASHINGTON DC * NATIONAL CIVIC ART SOCIETY CLASSIC PLANNING ALWAYS WORKED
  • ANACOSTIA PLAN INSTALLATION BURASWORKS * OPEN URBAN DESIGN STUDIO WASHINGTON DC * NATIONAL CIVIC ART SOCIETY • When unpenalized, people choose to use beautiful places over others. Beautiful spaces are functional and economical. • Beautiful spaces elicit statements of “it’s beautiful” regardless of their date of construction. People often choose to maintain them for generations. Beautiful spaces are fundamentally sustainable. • People in beautiful places are often on their “best behavior”, generally seem less prone to aggression and frequently less easy to victimize. Beautiful spaces are calming, encourage respect and are safer, THE PURPOSE OF URBANISM IS TO DESIGN A LEGACY OF BEAUTIFUL PLACES FOR PEOPLE
  • ANACOSTIA PLAN INSTALLATION BURASWORKS * OPEN URBAN DESIGN STUDIO WASHINGTON DC * NATIONAL CIVIC ART SOCIETY • We take the 100 year perspective. • The Federal District was formed around the persona of George Washington. It is based on the stability of humanistic values. • The L’enfant Plan is the urban DNA of the District of Columbia. • The McMillan Commission’s interpretation of the L'enfant Plan and the Commission’s own proposals provide a basis for the continued development of the City. • Design in any scale must be sustainable and withstand the test of time. It will be judged on Firmness, Commodity and Delight: FIRMNESS = longevity and sustainability. COMMODITY = functional flexibility, easy adaptation, regional appropriateness. DELIGHT = timelessness and beauty. DESIGN PRINCIPLES

They carry together less traffic than the CHAMPS ÉLYSÉES RIVERS COMPARED RIVER QUAYS “… the activity of the waterfront would really add to the interest of the parkway and give a character to it possessed by no other in this country. In several European river cities, notably Paris, Vienna and Budapest there are such combinations of a commercial quay with a promenade at a higher level and they form in many cases the most popular and delightful resorts for the people, but in no case we believe, are the conditions so favorable as at Washington…”

  • ANACOSTIA PLAN INSTALLATION BURASWORKS * OPEN URBAN DESIGN STUDIO WASHINGTON DC * NATIONAL CIVIC ART SOCIETY THE PLAN
  • ANACOSTIA PLAN INSTALLATION BURASWORKS * OPEN URBAN DESIGN STUDIO WASHINGTON DC * NATIONAL CIVIC ART SOCIETY The 100 year perspective is a holistic, organic approach that pays for itself with benefits across the board.
