The Washington Monument is an international symbol of the United States of America. The monument has around one million of visitors every year. The necessity for better amenities and accessibility, safety and security for the visitor (better than wait in a line under the rain) and better opportunities for citizens to learn about their monument, President Washington and the Mall. In respond to these needs it could be interesting to design (and perhaps to construct) a visitor center to say Welcome to all the visitors in a comfortable place. It is necessary that new construction does not compete with the monument, it is necessary also that this new building has the appropriate comfort for the visitors and for one of the most recognizable symbols of the world.
