On February 24, 2021, Marc Treib, Professor Emeritus of Architecture at the University of California Berkeley College of Environmental Design, wrote the following letter to the D.C. Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) concerning plans to relocate MARABAR, the site-specific installation by the celebrated artist Elyn Zimmerman at the National Geographic headquarters in Washington, D.C. The Cultural Landscape Foundation is calling for National Geographic to retain the artwork as part of a proposed campus renovation plan. The artist does now want the artwork relocated because it was created specifically for National Geographic and moving it could result in irreparable damage or destruction.
