AIA|DC invites you to a reception marking its current exhibition, Catastrophic Collapse: Lessons Learned, After the Fall. This exhibition features some of our nation’s most catastrophic structural disasters—from the South Fork Dam and Tacoma Narrows Bridge to the Northridge Meadows Apartments and the World Trade Center. Each catastrophic collapse offers a story with lessons learned that improved the way we design buildings today.
Welcome by Mary Fitch, AICP, Hon. AIA, Executive Director of AIA|DC/WAF, followed by brief remarks from Michael J. Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer at National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and Ernest Chrappah, Director of the District Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). Light hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be served.
The exhibition is organized by AIA|DC and generously sponsored by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and the District of Columbia Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA).
