Status: Complete Size: 450,000 SF Program: Public Library Address: 901 G Street NW, Washington, DC Building of the Year 2021 by world-architects.com
DESCRIPTION Mies van der Rohe constructed the Martin Luther King Memorial Library in 1972 in Washington, D.C. It serves as the Districts Downtown Central Library. Overtime it received substantial wear-and-tear and required revitalization. Martinez and Johnson Architecture + Mecanoo were chosen to complete a full redesign and renovation of the landmark building.
I was honored to be chosen to digitally draft the building’s Historic American Building Survey (HABS) drawings. I produced plans, elevations, sections and details of the existing building before renovation and printed them on archival bond paper for the HABS documentation. These efforts are now located in the United States Archives for future generations to have the opportunity to relive and study Mies’s famous D.C. library celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.
My role in this project was drafting and submitting the entire HABS documentation, CD documentation involving BIM management, and CA involving RFIs, CCDs, ASIs, Field Reports, and Site Visits.
