The Winning Design for DC’s 11th Street Bridge Park

 

On Thursday morning, the design jury for the highly-anticipated DC park will announce that the winning proposal comes from the team of OLIN, OMA and Arup.Plans have been in the works for over a year to turn three concrete piers into one elevated park connecting Anacostia and Navy Yard. The goal of the project is to create a connecting design with an appeal similar to that of the Providence River Bridge park in Rhode Island, although many compare the planned park to the High Line in New York City.

MGM National Harbor – Video / Renderings

MGM Casino National Harbor

This is a beautiful project, well conceptualized for the topography of the site and location. The view of the structure from I-95 will be powerful and dramatic. What a great architectural addition to Prince Georges County!

 

MGM National Harbor offers a sophisticated architectural approach that addresses the local area’s significant geographical and cultural history. The design is influenced by the natural topography of the dynamic Maryland site, the iconic nature of nearby national monuments, and their interactions with residents and visitors in this vibrant travel corridor. The piercing verticality of the streamlined high-rise hotel rises from a resort pedestal and is precisely positioned to maximize sightlines to Washington, D.C. and the Maryland countryside.

The Lip Bar invades Howard University’s Campus


The young ladies of TheLipBar.com have taken the Beauty and Cosmetic industry by storm lately. Three young ladies are promoting the latest in all natural beauty cosmetics with the lipstick line The Lip Bar. This was my first encounter with the young ladies, Melissa Butler, Alena McCord-Estes and Rosco Spears promoting and selling the line of lipsticks. I was extremely impressed by their professionalism and quality product. The Marketing campaign and social media is very attractive and represents the product very well. Visit their exciting website and check out the Bar Menu. I guarantee you will be impressed! I definitely was.
