If you could redo the style of the DC govt buildings would you leave them neo-classic?

Would you change the look of the US Capitol, or keep it the same?

With everything going on in this country, how a building looks is the least of my concerns!!! I worked in the Capitol for a good number of years, so it has a lot of sentimental value for me; but I have lived long enough to understand that everything changes with time.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

It’s not my favorite style personally, but the connection to Ancient Greece as an homage to the birthplace of democracy is an important symbol. I’d probably keep it the same for that reason, perhaps less colonial interior design and furnishings though.

Yes. I count the neo-classical architecture in DC as one of the good things about the USA.

I’d use whatever resources were letting me redo the style, for something else, if possible.
