Join the AIA|DC Urban Design Committee for our third annual series of open houses at leading architectural and urban design offices in DC. They will be showcasing projects currently in planning, design, or construction phases.

Attendees will gain awareness of the changes that are taking place in the city through design practices. This is an opportunity for the architectural community to see the current and future projects that can potentially transform the District, region, the nation, and the world.

KGP's philosophy is rooted in the basic premise that the best architecture stems from a coherent response to both the collective and individual needs and desires of people. Ultimately, the effect of good design is measured in the quality of life and well-being of the people who use and experience our designs. Nowhere has this philosophy been more thoroughly applied than in our transit projects.

Presented by: AIA|DC Urban Design Committee

Co-sponsored by: KGP
