Connecticut Avenue Overlook

Steps to Renewable Energy

The Golden Triangle BID, in partnership with the District Department of Transportation and ZGF Architects transformed the underutilized concrete semicircle at Connecticut Avenue by Dupont Circle into a pocket park named Connecticut Avenue Overlook, which demonstrates sustainable energy generation through the use of kinetic pavers and the piezoelectric effect (electricity resulting from pressure). The energy powers the LED lights in the park. This project was funded by Sustainable DC.
