The Kibel Gallery is proud to present The Dupont Underground: History & Potential Futures, a specially commissioned animation investigating the once abandoned underground streetcar station that has been transformed into a cultural institution for arts and architecture in Washington, D.C. 's Dupont Circle. Drawing on a wide range of archival material, the animation explores each historic period of Dupont Circle’s development, the relationship between above ground and subterranean structures, and how the Dupont Underground is animating this previously underutilized space through art, architecture, and other cultural production. At the confluence of architecture, planning, historic preservation, and real estate, the Dupont Underground is an exemplar of how the School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation’s disciplines can produce synergistic opportunities for the improvement of cities and civil life.
