Federal Triangle

Federal Triangle is considered as the greatest public works project ever undertaken. The Triangle stands today as the last great expression of the Beaux Arts style.

On August 10, 1791, the three fixed stars Arcturus, Regulus and Spica rose at sunset, forming a celestial triangle, and the city’s Federal Triangle was engineered to mirror the constellation’s pattern. Why fixed stars? They appeared to be permanent, therefore suggesting stability and spiritual benevolence, desirable traits when constructing a powerful institutional setting.
