You can learn more about Washington, D.C. by meeting the architects who shape the way it looks and feels. In the year-long series, Your City, Your Architects, the Washington, D.C. chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|DC) will feature lectures once a month. On March 1, Alan Dynerman of Dynerman Architects will speak on how architecture influences our daily lives and how architects design to enhance the needs of the broader population. Originally, the event was scheduled for February 22. The event will occur at 6:30 p.m. at the District Architecture Center (DAC) at 421 7th Street NW.
Some of Dynerman's works include the University of Virginia School of Law, the St. Ignatius Chapel (pictured above), and the Henri Beaufour Institute. Dynerman has won a myriad of awards, including the Washington Chapter AIA Merit Award and the National AIA Honor Award.
The first speaker in the Your City, Your Architects series was Mark McInturff of McInturff Architects, who spoke on the history of Modernism in January 26. After Dynerman, the following speaker will be Janet Bloomberg and Richard Loosle-Ortega of KUBE. They both will share input on what modern design looks like in a traditional city. There are still no reports yet on what other future speakers the public should expect.
The entry fee for the events range from $10 for students and associate AIA members to $15 for AIA and DAC members to $35 for non-members. Registration is required to enter, so be sure to do so here before
