Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial – (Washington, D.C.)

The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is located in the West Potomac Park in Washington, D.C. The memorial’s design and development represents the capstone of a distinguished career for the memorial’s designer, landscape architect Lawrence Halprin. The memorial’s design concept of four outdoor “rooms” and gardens is animated by water, stone, and sculpture. The “rooms” represent Roosevelt’s four terms of office. Sculptures of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and scenes of the great depression are part of the memorial.
