This year is going to be a little different. For the health and safety of our community, this year’s live event will be virtual. On Monday, November 16, grab your favorite drinks and snacks and tune in to the 2020 Honor Awards for Washington Architecture Oscars-style awards reveal! We are sorry to miss gathering in person this year, but look forward to your engagement via social media during the live broadcast. We encourage you to get creative with small group viewing parties, and we can’t wait to “see” you on the red carpet!
This course is meant to provide young professionals with a framework of how to read and effectively use the 2018 IBC. Participants will learn how to first approach the building code when working on a new project, which chapters are important to review during early design, and how the code affects project constraints and opportunities. Learn more and register here.
Join us as we kick off the next topic in the series: Future of Design. Our Future of Design panels will explore how the COVID experience is changing the way we think about and design buildings and spaces.
