  • On inauguration day it will hold more than 1,600 people including:
    • The President and Vice-President-elects and their families
    • Members of U.S. Senate and House of Representatives
    • Cabinet members and nominees
    • Justices of the Supreme Court
    • The outgoing President and Vice President
    • Former presidents
    • The Joint Chiefs of Staff
    • Governors
    • The diplomatic corps
  • In addition, bleachers built above the platform, on the Upper West
  • Terrace will hold another 1,000 people including choirs and guests.
  • It is built entirely of lumber, to protect the surfaces of the Capitol.
  • The platform is fully ADA compliant.
  • It is a stadium design, which maximizes the sightlines for the guests on the platform.
  • It is designed to blend architecturally with the U.S. Capitol.
  • Planning and design of the platform began more than a year ago.
