Join us for a Sense of Place Tour Series.
The goal of this series is to help District residents and other interested parties understand the context of the challenges facing the city today through the lens of the built environment.
Seven in-person tours will look at different parts of the city and different building types. Tours will be given by architects involved with the project and, where possible, also the client. Tours will include the history of the site and how that history and context inform the process of renovation and renewal.
11th Street Bridge Park Walking Tour + Discussion
The 11th Street Bridge Park, a partnership between the Ward 8-based nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River and the District Department of Transportation, will be Washington, D.C.’s first elevated public park. Led by Scott Kratz, Building Bridges Across the River Senior Vice President & 11th Street Bridge Park Director.
Anchored by the historic former Fannie Mae headquarters, City Ridge offers nearly 1.8 million square feet of mixed-use development on 10 acres in upper northwest Washington, DC. Led by Ari Blumenthal, AIA and Nicolas Lundstrom of Shalom Baranes Associates.
