Karolina Kawiaka, senior lecturer and director of the architecture program in the studio art department at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, is one of two winners of an international competition to redesign the grounds surrounding the Washington Monument in the nation’s capital.
Kawiaka’s design includes a 3,000-seat amphitheater on a great lawn at the base of the monument, a visitor’s center, and a museum. The competition was administered by George Washington University. The nonprofit Trust for the National Mall will make the final decisions on the renovations to the grounds of the monument.
Kawiaka is a registered architect and operates her own design firm in White River Junction, Vermont. She is a graduate of Smith College and earned a master’s degree in architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. She has taught at Dartmouth for the past 15 years.
