On the intersection of 15th and Constitution in Washington, D.C., stand three classically inspired piers designed by Charles Bulfich, architect of the Capitol. These and at least 21 others used to circle the perimeter of the Capitol. So how, when and why did they move? Join Sharon C. Park as she recounts her research and adventures to uncover the story of three oft overlooked D.C. landmarks.
Sharon C. Park, FAIA, is the associate director of the Architectural History and Historic Preservation Division for the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. She is in the Office of Planning Design and Construction, and fills the role of preservation officer for the institution.
