The Museum’s newest exhibition, Unbuilt Washington, opening November 19, presents unrealized architectural and urban design projects—some breathtakingly beautiful, some awful, and some simply bizarre—from throughout the capital’s history. In this four-part series, curator G. Martin Moeller, Jr. comments on proposals for just a few of the city’s prominent buildings and sites.
