This exhibition spotlights winning photos from the #iseeDC2016 Instagram photo contest organized by the AIA|DC Design Excellence Committee.

Of the 700-plus photos posted between October and December 2016, 35 were selected by a jury for the exhibition. Each photo captures a place in our nation’s capital that has special meaning to those who participated in the contest.

The aim for the contest—and exhibition—is to raise public awareness of the built environment in Washington, DC and explore how design can not only delight and inspire, but also reveal order and create a sense of place.

Organized by the AIA|DC Design Excellence Committee in cooperation with AIA|DC for the SIGAL Gallery. #iseeDC2016 Instagram Photo Contest and Exhibition Planning Committee: Steve Kunin, AIA, LEED AP; Dani Hoge, Assoc. AIA.
