Platt designed The Freer Gallery of Art. But the meuseums monuments can also atract people as we'll.

There are many monuments in the mall. They are all decorated very well. Some monuments honor the people lost in a war like the WWII monument at the end of the reflection pool. There are also museums in a Quadrangle format. This place is home to some of the nations. Most historical stuff. There is a purpose to all these memorials.

The memorials aren't just built for you to look at. They represent death,war, and honor. The Vietnam memorial is to represent those who died in the Vietnam war. The Washington monument honors our first president. And all the war monument represent the wars we have fought and won. There is a lot that happens in the national mall.
