Preserving the Southwest Urban Renewal Area

(p.185) Chapter 7 Modernist Urbanism as History
Historic Capital

University of Minnesota Press

brings the preservation story in Washington DC full circle by looking carefully at the highly contested attempt in the early years of the 21st century to protect and preserve Capitol Park (1959). This landmark of modern design in the national capital was built as part of Washington’s massive Southwest urban renewal project and thus remained a deeply ambivalent place for Washington’s preservationists.
