‘when launching our nationwide design competition, we aimed  to engage the best design firms in the country to help us create the 11th street bridge park – a new civic space in the nation’s capital supporting the community’s physical, environmental, economic and cultural health. we were humbled to see both the quality and quantity in the response. we thank all of the firms that took the care and effort to assemble such inspirational proposals,’ said 11th street bridge park director scott kratz.
