Speck found an odd-shaped lot. We have an entirely off city. Surely there is a place here for something similar.
The Speck House, at Better Cities and Towns
One of the most urbanistically interesting houses built in Washington, DC, in recent years belongs to Jeff Speck, design director of the National Endowment for the Arts from 2003 to 2007 and, before that, director of town planning at Duany Plater-Zyberk & Co. In 2004, Speck decided to find and purchase one of the many lots in the District that, because of their odd shapes, had remained undeveloped throughout two centuries of Washington development.
