Architect's Virtual Capitol

The Architect of the Capitol is "the builder and steward of America's Capitol" and is responsible, not only for the Capitol Building, but for many other important buildings in Washington D.C. This media-rich tour of the U.S. Capitol offers an overview of each building, along with a look at the art and architecture, and history of each. The Behind the Scenes section also gives an insider's view of the conservation and preservation work involved in maintaining these iconic buildings. For the most comprehensive view of this site, be sure to click on the Layers and Features, then click on each of the buildings the map reveals.
