Previous Review


Dear Mr. Reyes-Gavilan:

In its public meeting of 16 April conducted by videoconference, the Commission
of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the proposed final design for the replacement of the Lamond-Riggs Neighborhood Library, located at 5401 South Dakota Avenue, NE. The Commission members expressed appreciation for the project team’s responsiveness to their previous guidance, including clarification of the architectural details and materials and the refinement of the site plan in order to create a sequence of south-facing public spaces that extend the library’s uses through shady, semi-enclosed outdoor rooms.

As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
