June is just around the corner... which means it's almost time for AIA24! AIA24 is a premier annual conference that celebrates multidisciplinary solutions from across the built environment and the power of designing a better world, together.

Register today and learn more at https://buff.ly/2rIcccu

Every year, the AIA and AEC communities convene to network, share knowledge, and find solutions to design a better world. The conference fuses together industries, identities, skills, styles, and values, to establish a new multidisciplinary understanding of today’s most pressing issues. And it unites tradition and innovation, art and technology, form and function, old and new, and global and local to examine, educate, and find solutions.

Join us NEXT FRIDAY for a fascinating walk through the Architecture of Historic Anacostia!

Register today: https://buff.ly/44S4EWU

The rolling hills east of the Anacostia River, with a commanding view of the Washington skyline, have been settled for centuries. Anacostia, as the neighborhood in Southeast DC is known today, has seen dramatic change and stark contrasts—from the trading grounds of the indigenous Nacotchtank to a Whites-only planned suburb called “Uniontown” to a predominantly Black enclave. Famous abolitionist Frederick Douglass, known as the “Sage of Anacostia,” spent the last 18 years of his life on his Anacostia estate, Cedar Hill. Douglass died in the home in 1895, and the house is now a free museum operated by the National Park Service (where our tour concludes). Anacostia gained infamy as the escape route of John Wilkes Booth, who fled down Good Hope Road after murdering President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in 1865. The waterfront served as protest grounds for WWI veterans during the Great Depression, who demanded the government pay they had been promised, and were then violently expelled by fellow U.S. troops led by General Douglas MacArthur. Today, the neighborhood endures as a modern testament to the resilience of the city’s Black community.

This walking tour is packed with historical buildings and fascinating anecdotes. From the Anacostia Arts Center’s former life as a 1937 Woolworth store to the 19-foot-tall chair on V Street SE, Anacostia’s fascinating and diverse architecture encapsulates the many identities this area has held. Today, new planned development and local investment in historic preservation are rapidly changing the character of this ever-shifting neighborhood.

Join us on May 22nd for Architecture Uncensored: The Power of Negotiating in Self-Advocacy. Register today: https://buff.ly/3yfbqda

Architecture Uncensored is an annual series organized by the AIA|DC Emerging Architects Committee that discusses challenging topics within our profession. This event encourages interactive and lively conversations between emerging professionals and firm leaders as we dive into questions we often find challenging to discuss in our offices.

Part 1 of our series will focus on how emerging professionals can find their value in the early stages of their careers and the current state of our market. In this challenging economic climate, emerging professionals are looking to understand how they can negotiate for themselves, find supportive mentors, and be intentional with their work-life balance to manage burnout. Panelists representing a range of leadership, experience, firm size, project type, and daily practice will discuss how emerging professionals can advocate for and understand their value in a difficult market.

Join us at DAC on MAY 8th to celebrate the opening of our latest exhibition - reIMAGINE: Creating New Uses for Old Buildings

Register today: https://buff.ly/49V5rqM

This exhibition presents 19 buildings in the Washington, DC, area that architects have recently reimagined, bringing new life to structures that might otherwise have been doomed to disuse, decay, and ultimately the wrecking ball. Any building that survives long enough is likely to undergo regular maintenance, occasional restoration, or possibly comprehensive renovation. Even so, some buildings inevitably become obsolete due to changes in business practices, technology, demographics, or other factors. Fortunately, many structures facing obsolescence can be converted to purposes other than the ones for which they were designed—a process known as adaptive reuse. Essentially a form of recycling at a large scale, adaptive reuse offers numerous potential advantages over new construction, including environmental, economic, and social benefits.

We welcome your presence at this opening and invite you to navigate through all 19 projects featured, and learn more about the benefits of adaptive reuse. Drinks and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

THIS FRIDAY, join AIA|DC and DC Design Tours for a Walking Tour of 16th Street and Adams Morgan!

Register today: https://buff.ly/3QgIuHI

Less than two miles north of the White House, DC’s Northwest neighborhoods feel a world away from the towering monuments and expansive boulevards of downtown Washington. Sixteenth Street and Adams Morgan have long been recognized for their rich history and cultural diversity. Home to ambassadors and politicians, revolutionaries and civil rights leaders, these neighborhoods have hosted and housed every type of District resident, from working class to social elite. Visit one of Washington’s best hidden oases, hear stories of movers and shakers, protests, disasters, social scandals, and get off the beaten path!

Our tour begins in Meridian Hill Park, one of Washington’s best urban oases. We’ll uncover little known memorials, wind through back paths, and discuss the enterprising woman who envisioned a diplomatic paradise in the heights of Washington. We’ll see the only female equestrian statue in the city and might even catch a drum circle.

After leaving Meridian Hill Park, we’ll stroll up 16th Street, the “spine” of the District, to have a look at historic mansions, embassies, apartment homes, churches, and even a Masonic temple. Turning west toward Adams Morgan, we’ll take a short detour into charming Lanier Heights to see the cutest fire station in town. Finally we’ll head down 18th street, to the beating heart of Adams Morgan and Northwest Washington.

04/23/2024
