    The front of the U.S. Capitol is modified every four years with a special platform with a stage for the Presidential Inauguration. The platform is designed with seating for all of the VIPs and security features to protect them. In September 2016, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies and the Architect of the Capitol held a Nail Ceremony launching the  construction on the inaugural platform. This photo shows construction workers building a scaffolding at the West Front of the Capitol on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The 58th Presidential Inaugural Platform will be more than 10,000 square feet. The platform is constructed entirely from scratch for each inaugural ceremony. The completed platform will hold approximately 1,600 inaugural guests, including members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, cabinet members and nominees, Supreme Court justices, former presidents, and the president and vice president and their families.
