Dupont Circle Could Have Been Crystal City!?


We just received the Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward ( 750.92 W949ZC3) catalog from the Guggenheim exhibition of the same name. In it are drawings from 1940 that he had done for a development called "Crystal City, Washington, DC"! It was supposed to go in at the intersection of Florida and Connecticut Avenue NW, but was ultimately abandoned due to zoning restrictions. However, a version of it does seems to live just to our south.
