The REACH, the recent expansion of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, is designed by architect Steven Holl and the firm’s team, led by Chris McVoy. Its three contiguous pavilions are set amidst 130,000 sf of landscaped property designed to integrate the REACH’s interior and exterior space, executed by HOLLANDERdesign|Landscape Architects. Forming a unified campus with the Kennedy Center’s original Edward Durell Stone building, the REACH creates a connection to the adjacent Potomac River and other monuments.
The ICAA and AIA|DC chapters invite you to join Chris McVoy (Senior Partner and Design Architect for Steven Holl Architects) and Edmund Hollander (founder of Hollander Design) for a tour and conversation about the REACH at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Meet at 6:00 PM at the doors to Studio F in the Reach for a tour of the project, led by Chris and Ed, followed by a lecture at 6:45 in Studio F. Feel free to join in for only the lecture at 6:45.
