Wait, what are they doing now?

Sounds like mostly improvements to accessibility.

It seems like it’s been wrapped in construction cloth for years….

They mentioned in the article that they were restoring all the outside concrete/roofing.

I see there was once a museum entrance directly from the sculpture garden, as well as a bunch of revolving doors that have been blocked off.

It'd be great if those were reopened, but I know they're not going to because they have to have their damn security theater.

??? If you read the article it speaks about improving mall side access.

Also some of those doors were to the old education space for their drop in teen programs. Education will be in a new space according to the article.

Is it still going to be the ugliest building in DC?

That's a funny way to spell the Department of Labor building.

I always thought the same!!! Even worse is it is a horrible design for an art museum. Curved walls dont make good space to hang things on walls

Good think a large part of the Hirshhorn collection doesn’t need to be hung on a wall
