The United States Capitol Building is located in Washington, D.C., at the eastern end of the National Mall. At the U.S. Capitol Building the Senate and the House of Representatives come together to discuss, debate and deliberate national policy; develop consensus; and craft the country's laws. As the nation has grown so has the Capitol Building: today it covers well over 1.5 million square feet, has over 600 rooms, and miles of corridors. It is crowned by a magnificent white dome that overlooks the city of Washington and has become a widely recognized icon of the American people and government. The Capitol's design was selected by President George Washington in 1793 and construction began shortly thereafter.
