I’ve visited Hunter Hoskins office twice now, both on Thursdays, once to gain clarity on the built environment project and once to discuss the rewriting of my rhetorical analysis.
This picture is taken from the right side of Luther Place, facing Thomas Circle. The street covered by the tree is where the Weston claims it’s territory, directly across the circle. The steeple on the right side of the picture decorates the top of the National City Church, another witness to the going ons of […]
Across Thomas Circle stands Luther Place Memorial Church. The quiet lighting, gardens, and haunting classical architecture provide a stark comparison to the Weston across the way. Truly unique to the small D.C. area to have a historical church and witness to the drama and revamp of a glitzy hotel some meters away.
The green lights, this time from the left side, again highlight the odd marks on the side of the facade of the hotels wall. On top of this, it is immediately obvious that the green of the lights do not match the warm looking interior. As the lights range across the spectrum some, such as […]
This picture depicts the first set of three lights on the right side of the building (four sets of lights total) and the concrete wall that they illuminate. I chose this picture to highlight the repaired spots on the wall, which seems odd considering the renovation the hotel underwent in 2008. It results in an […]
Taken from the entrance of the parking garage, marked only by the singular unmarked sign, this displays the hidden nature of the garage.

Words that jump out: other facilities, utilized, […]
1. I don’t like hotels, I never have and I probably never will. No, I’ve never been scarred by some abhorrent service or stained sheets, I’ve never been forced to deal with screaming toddlers or barking dogs. My dislike of hotels comes from my distaste for sterility and vehement detestation of cruel people. I’m not […]
Annotated Bibliography 2 Makenzie Gold Quiros For my second annotated bibliography I’ve chosen another article written on Marion Barry, but from a much different perspective than the first. This article was written by Elliott Francis in 2014, 24 years after Mayor Barry’s initial bust and consequent jail time. He gives significant background on the ordeal, […]
