2003 Hines Competition Winner – Harvard University


“City Beautiful + City Real”

Team 4731
Harvard University

“City Beautiful and City Real” extends the neoclassical “City Beautiful” of Washington’s monumental core into the South Capitol study area, where it collides with the real city. This collision is marked by the intersection of the monumental South Capitol Street and the “real” commercial thoroughfare of the neighborhood, M Street, which becomes a “fulcrum,” around which a transit-oriented, mixed use neighborhood can develop, serving a live-work community of a “creative class” of residents.
