The Tidal Basin Ideas Lab exhibition invites the public to explore the histories and challenges of the Tidal Basin, and – importantly — to share their feedback about the five landscape architecture firms’ ideas for the evolution of this important part of America’s landscape.

 

The Tidal Basin Ideas Lab exhibition includes films and digital animations, concise audio/visual presentations of each landscape architect’s proposal, interviews with the architects, and digital opportunities for the general public to get involved, as well as photographs from the National Archive documenting the Tidal Basin’s histories.  Click this link to two new informational booklets that capture results of the Tidal Basin Ideas Lab.

The Ideas Lab online exhibition is designed to add a narrative perspective to the landscape architecture firms’ proposals, bringing to life the various histories of the Tidal Basin, both told and untold, since its completion in 1887.
