An intern architect at Blackburn, Matt Himler, who recently graduated from Catholic University, has the opportunity to possibly see one of his school studio projects constructed. This is a rare opportunity for a young designer, so I’d really like to promote his outstanding work by showing it off to all of you.

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) here in D.C. joined several local business organizations in an effort to enhance the hospitality experience at the Eastern Market Metro Plaza, a metro stop in the Capitol Hill neighborhood on D.C.’s public transit system. In doing so, the group ran a design competition for an information hub/kiosk that will be used to direct visitors to attractions in the area while serving as a local events and news center for residents. Several designs were selected and are now in the comment period, during which the public can provide feedback that will be used to form a recommendation for a final design.

Matt’s project is the custom design/build structure 2: MUTATIO. You can view his and alternative designs on the Capitol Hill Information Hub Project blog.
