dc.description.abstract A call for design proposals for three features for the National Garden was held in October, 1992 by the National Fund for the U.S. Botanic Garden. The competition called for refinement of an existing master plan developed by EDAW, a landscape architectural firm, or the design of a new concept for the National Garden. This creative project chose to develop a new master and to document the research, process, and assumptions that lead to the final design. The research will focus on the examination of the site and it's history (Washington, D.C.) and examination into the history, evolution, and relevance of botanic gardens.The underlying thesis is that the changing roles that botanic gardens have played in society have had an effect on their built form. The current role of botanic garden as a pleasure garden aswell as an educational experiences is the result of hundreds of years of evolution. By the examination of the history and changing roles of botanic gardens, this creative project will design a space that not only meets the needs of the competition, but will meet the needs of the generation at hand.
