The National Mall: Design and Tradition

If you've been to The National Mall in Washington, D.C. surely you've been stirred with emotion at the varying memorials. Each memorial seems to embody a different aspect of American culture from the seemingly elite Vietnam Memorial, the heavy handed WWII memorial and the stoic Lincoln Memorial. In yesterday's New York Times, Nicolai Ouroussoff discussed the varying clash of design, tradition and modernity within The National Mall. As the Mall will take center stage on Tuesday inauguration, I encourage you to check out the mall--see what it evokes in you and discuss with us here or on Twitter your thoughts.
