PEDESTRIANS FIRST: Architect pitches ByWard Market dream vision

A local architect is challenging people to think about how the ByWard Market can be more pedestrian friendly through a concept he put together on his own time, simply because he loves the place. Toon Dreessen, president of Architects DCA, unveiled his vision Tuesday at the central ByWard Market building, emphasizing the need to reduce car traffic in one of the city’s main tourist attractions.
