The competition brief did not specify a specific location for the project; in consequence we used a typical washington city block for the foot-print of our proposal. Our concept was articulated through typical elements of arabic architecture, while at the same time keeping an open dialogue with the surrounding buildings. The traditional 8 branched star is transformed into a 3d structure surrounding a patio, a central space against which all other functions are organized.
