Conde Nast Traveler’s April Issue has published the New 7 wonders of the architectural world. One of the seven is here in Washington D.C.! The Kogod Courtyard at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum has been named one of the seven wonders because of it’s curved ceiling of glass and steel over the courtyard connecting the building to itself. This is a worthwhile place in the District to visit, not only for history and art, but for the courtyard’s architecture. The courtyard officially opened this past year and is open when the museum is.
