Washington DC The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a cultural center for performing arts in Washington DC. The skateboards in the picture are designed by Sean Cliver (born 1969) and used by skateboard skater Ray Barbee (born 1971).
Most of the employed in Washington live in the suburbs and commute daily to work, mainly by car. Many large federal workplaces are located outside the city, such as the Pentagon Arlington Department of Defense, as well as a large number of research institutions. More recently, national and international organizations have increasingly been located in the city. Washington National as well as Dulles and Washington-Baltimore International are the three largest airports. Public transport is mainly handled by buses, but the subway and rail networks are being expanded. Private car traffic dominates widely, and the region has an extensive road system.
Architecture and cityscape
Washington was designed in 1791 by Frenchman Pierre Charles L’Enfant. The city plan is a grid plan, intersected by diagonal avenues and bustling parks that radiate from the Capitol and the White House. The grand plan took a long time to complete, and it was as late as the 20th century before Washington’s cityscape was completed.

The Washington DC White House has been the official residence of US presidents since 1800, when John Adams moved in. The building began to be erected in 1792 after drawing by James Hoban in neoclassical style. Several subsequent renovations and additions have taken place.
Around the Capitol and the park “The Mall” the city is characterized by low, neoclassical government buildings in white and gray stone. Of contemporary architecture can be mentioned Dulles Airport (1958) by Eero Saarinen and National Gallery of Art, East Building (1978) by IM Pei. On the other side of the Potomac River lies the Pentagon (1940–41), the headquarters of the Ministry of War. Washington’s most important public monument includes the Washington Monument (1836–84), a 170 m high obelisk, and the Lincoln Memorial (1914–22), designed as a Doric temple.
The geographical location of the new capital that the US Congress of 1790 decided to construct became a compromise between the northern and southern states. The site was named after George Washington and in 1800 became the formal capital. After the Civil War, Washington grew strongly, including by moving in a large number of former slaves. Washington had no tax right of its own and could not cope with the major social problems that the growth created, which caused Congress to abolish Washington’s autonomy in the 1870s. It was not until 1961 that residents gained the right to vote for presidential elections, and in 1974 Washington regained limited autonomy and the right to elect mayor and proxy. During the 1930s depression, Washington regained a strong influence and has been grappling with severe social problems ever since.
