4/27, Noon – AIA DC Architecture Month Building of the Day Tour
Our Naylor Court Play House (and studio) is featured as AIA DC’s Building of the Day. April is Architecture Month, an annual series of public programs offered by AIA DC to ‘shine a spotlight on Washington’s design culture for architecture enthusiasts of all ages.’ The theme of Architecture Month 2018 will be the 50th Anniversary of the myriad historical events that (re)shaped the city in 1968. See how this pocket of Shaw has and continues to evolve since those turbulent days. Continuing education credits available for design professionals.
