The Rock Creek meets the Potomac in a thin peninsula. It’s the site of a lifetime. The needle with water on three sides commands a spectacular view of such landmarks as Georgetown, Watergate and the Kennedy Center. The protruding setting called for an emblematic building, illuminating the idea of the open society.
