By Matt KarpisA few weeks ago, I wrote a piece called “Gala City” about the new DC capitol building.
Here’s the gist: We’re building the next generation of DC’s iconic capitol.
This building is about to be the biggest building in the nation.
It’s about to create a new kind of city.
Its the new face of the nation, and its the new symbol of the city.
We’ve already begun planning.
We have to get the building up and running.
The work will take years, and will involve many more years of planning.
It’s going to take a lot of capital to get it all built.
I’m excited to share more about this new building with you this week, and to announce that I’m joining the team as a contributor.

Over the last few years, I’ve built a reputation for being a good source of information for all kinds of media, and a very reliable source of data on everything from baseball and football to sports and entertainment.
In 2016, I started writing about my experiences covering the DC cap of the New York Times.
This year, I’m launching a new book, called “The Capitol Building Builders,” which I’m excited about sharing with you all.
Matt and I have known each other for about a decade, and we’ve been friends for years, even before I began working in the media.
Matt and I worked together on several pieces for the DC Daily News and the DCist.
Matt is an award-winning writer with an uncanny knack for building stories, and his stories have been used in TV and film projects, including “Goliath” and “Crazy Rich Asians.”
