Though once better known for being affordable than trendy, the profile of this neighborhood adjoining the SW waterfront is clearly on the rise. Join us as we learn what distinguishes this neighborhood from countless other urban renewal projects of the 1950′s and 60′s. Speakers Richard Longstreth, professor at George Washington University, and Todd Ray, architect at Studio Twenty Seven Architecture, will explain how the neighborhood came to look as it does and why both individual buildings and the overall planning and development are significant. We will look at the role that architects such as I M Pei, Harry Weese and Chloethiel Woodard Smith had in shaping the neighborhood and its architecture.
