Chloethiel Woodard Smith was an American architect and urban planner whose career was centered in Washington, D.C. She designed many commercial, government and residential projects are the metro area and was influential in proposing a national museum to celebrate buildings and architecture. That building became the Pension Building which was renovated and continues to house the National Building Museum today. By 1967, Smith ran the largest female-run architectural firm in the United States.
Emily Ehrens, a Design Clique reader and TTR Sotheby’s International Realtor, just recently informed us that an original Cloethiel Woodard Smith home is now on the market in Bethesda, MD.
