Urban Design Open House Series: Wiencek + Associates

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.

Since 1986, Wiencek + Associates has conducted work on a broad range of project types especially multi-family housing, senior housing, community, supportive housing, institutional, public and master planning projects.  We have established a strong reputation in the award-winning master planning and development of mixed-use, mixed income, large scale projects that required diligent planning, thoughtful relocation plans and exceptional partnering skills with local residents, neighborhood groups, local agencies and key stakeholders.  We possess a great depth of experience in understanding and transforming key historic structures, creative adaptive reuse and thoughtful visioning and master planning of large urban sites.  We are recognized for urban place-making, integrating existing and new structures, open spaces, paths, nodes, landmarks, and a sense of place to create successful communities of opportunity.
