Architectural drawing of the new Student Center at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) by architect Michael Marshall. This rendering is done in ink and watercolor on translucent paper. The drawing shows a colorful view of the new student center at UDC which opened in 2016. The building is depicted on the right side of the image with outlined figures shown around the center. On the left is a sidewalk with an elevator and row of trees along the curb. A grassy area is shown between the sidewalk and the building, separated by a low wall. The wall has two (2) flagpoles with the American and D.C. flags depicted. The exterior staircases and large windows are visible in the drawing. There is a multi-story clock tower next to the glass atrium in the center of the image. The reverse is blank. The work is signed in the lower right corner.
