Kogod Courtyard Review

Tourists may flock to the museums of Air & Space and Natural History. But in our opinion, the National Portrait Gallery, is an underrated gem within the Smithsonian family and the Kogod Courtyard is the star within. The waving roof by Foster & Partners and muted landcaping by Gustafson/Guthrie/Nichol elegantly compliment the historic architecture of the building. Who knew old and new could work so well together.
