By Dave Itzkoff
New York Times

The architect Frank Gehry has been chosen to design a memorial in Washington to honor
President Dwight D. Eisenhower, The Washington Post reported. Mr. Gehry and his
company, Gehry Partners, were chosen by a memorial commission from a short list of
four architectural firms that also included Ron Krueck of Krueck & Sexton, Rob Rogers
and Jonathan Marvel of Rogers Marvel Architects, and Peter Walker of PWP Landscape

The memorial will be built on a four-acre site between Fourth and Sixth Streets SW,
south of Independence Avenue and near the Department of Education and the National
Air and Space Museum. The Washington Post said that the project would cost between
$90 million to $120 million and would take five years to complete.
