Material Testing Laboratory for the District Department of Transportation
414 Farragut Street, NE
Dear Mr. Cyrus:
During its meeting of 15 May, the Commission reviewed the design of a new Material Testing Laboratory for the District of Columbia, located at 414 Farragut Street, NE. The project showed a refreshing strength of design with its inventive massing, material choice and use of color. The proposal was approved unanimously.
The Commission looks forward to the review of other well-articulated designs for the District of Columbia and commends the District government on its efforts to provide interesting and respectful additions to the community.
