Competition to Redesign parts of the National Mall

The National Mall has been loved to death. It is our country’s most visited national park, with more than 25 million annual visitors and 3,000 annual permitted events. This 700-acre park was not built to withstand this level of use and has not received adequate resources to be restored and maintained to a level befitting its role as an irreplaceable piece of our American fabric.

This is a welcomed opportunity to improve what I have heard described as the nation's living room, the national mall has been allowed to languish over the years. Now the is an effort to improve the functional and aesthetic qualities of the land making up the space connecting the institutions of our government, museums and open spaces.

Trust for the National Mall
