The Fourth Place

Crystal City Shops Underground Mall sits surrounded by movement: the Metro, the Airport and soon enough Amazon HQ2. Yet it appears unchanged since the 90s, hosting a confused mix of stores that seem to be going out of business. On Friday nights, more than fifty adults gather in the mall to play board games and eat candy until midnight. The sacred space offers a break from the hyperconnectivity of the outside world.
