The brand new 296-room, 10-storey lodge is positioned in a fast-growing space, connecting travellers to a few of the most well-known landmarks in America.
citizenM wished to create a lodge that will replicate the range of Washington D.C., so that they took inspiration from the “United Colours of Washington”. Circulations, an artwork set up by Hannah Whitaker, commissioned by citizenM’s artwork workforce, wraps across the facade of the lodge. The mural incorporates a feminine naturalistic presence that appears at odds with the photographs’ stark techno-futurism. Whitaker achieves spectacular results by rigorously staging every shot of the identical feminine topic in silhouette. Whitaker cites the imperfections in her work and proof of its handmade building, as highlighting “the generative potential of human error within the face of digital automation.”
