As part of a renewed focus on the Anacostia River for the city of Washington, D.C, MPFP worked integrally with a multidisciplinary team to transform an area of industrial waterfront into a vibrant, world-class park to serve the City’s residents well into the future.

The park provides a unique nexus between the river, active and passive recreational areas, commercial interests and residents. It is one of four primary urban waterfront destinations in the Nation’s Capital and is a quick walk to or from the Washington National ballpark.  It has become an important punctuation in the broader waterfront experience as 20-Miles of the Anacostia River walk and Trail are developed.

MPFP’s design responds to broader goals for the Southeast Federal Center Park – namely that of having diversity in program, dynamics in form, integration between public + private spaces, and a balance between the built and natural environments. In 2013, MPFP was awarded the prestigious ULI Urban Open Space award for creating an important community asset linking the Washington, DC waterfront to other integral public spaces.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
