Description

11th Annual Rhode Island Heritage Festival, 1988, photographed at the Rhode Island State House. The State House was designed by McKim, Mead & White and much of the structure's interior and exterior remain intact and true to the designs. Much like the public spaces inside of the second floor, the lawn offers an openness to the impeding colossus of the building that follows. This creates a space of availability and oversight to the house, atop the peak of Smith hill, purveying towards downtown's varying structure.
