Arthur Cotton Moore Letter to NPS Regarding the Proposed Kennedy Center-Riverfront Access Project

Arthur Cotton Moore

Letter to the National Park Service from renowned architect Arthur Cotton Moore concerning the design options of the proposed the Kennedy Center/Potomac River Pedestrian Access Improvement Project. In 1987 in The Washington Post, Mr. Moore, who designed the Washingtion Harbour project nearby on the Georgetown waterfront, proposed extending the promenade from the Washington Harbour complex around to the Kennedy Center — and then — connecting the Center’s terrace to the Potomac River via a grand stair. The proposal was adopted by the National Capital Planning Commission but has yet to be executed.
