    美国国会的办公大楼,建在一处高28米的国会山上。1793年华盛顿亲自为大厦奠基,南北战争爆发后,有人提议停建该大厦,林肯总统却坚持把大圆顶造好。现在,国会大厦的这个圆顶已经成为电视中美国政治新闻报道的最佳背景,圆顶内部是一个可容纳二三千人的金碧辉煌的大厅。
  中央圆形大厅是国会大厦的心脏,气势宏伟的精美壁画和多尊重要历史人物雕塑是参观的重点。圆形的墙壁上,有8个大幅油画,分两个阶段记载了美国历史上的8个重大事件。其中央大厅顶端圆心上的图画——《天堂中的华盛顿》(Apotheosis of Washington)则是出自意大利画家康斯坦丁•布卢米狄之手。中央圆形大厅的南侧,是环立着形形色色人物雕像的大厅。其中的一尊是与真人大小完全相同、用洁白云石雕刻的林肯石像。
  大厦的北厢是参议院,南厢是众议院,两院各有小会议厅和许多大小房间。此外还有雕像厅,里面是几十座美国各州历任议员的巨型雕像。白色的国会大厦被草坪和树林环绕,远看犹如被置放在绿绒毯上的象牙雕刻。


The United States Capitol, often called the Capitol Building or Capitol Hill, is the seat of the United States Congress, the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government. It sits atop Capitol Hill, at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Though not at the geographic center of the Federal District, the Capitol forms the origin point for the District's street-numbering system and the District's four quadrants.

The original building was completed in 1800 and was subsequently expanded, particularly with the addition of the massive dome. Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in a distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior. Both its east and west elevations are formally referred to as fronts, though only the east front was intended for the reception of visitors and dignitaries.

In 2014, scaffolding was erected around the dome for a restoration project scheduled to be completed by early 2017. All exterior scaffolding was removed by the end of summer 2016.
