From architecture to fashion to the doctor's office, this week we're all about design. We'll visit the site of a forthcoming memorial to D.C.'s godfather of go-go, Chuck Brown. We'll learn how green design is being incorporated into local schools. And we'll pay homage to the former slave who worked her way up to becoming Mary Todd Lincoln's personal dressmaker, and a fervent social activist.
