About the RE-Form Product Design Awards Competition:
For the second annual RE-Form Product Design Competition, entrants were invited to RE-Skin. The brief for the competition posited that experiences are intrinsically composed by the tangible and intangible architecture that trigger the senses. It is through this delicate exchange of sensorial information that we create lasting impressions from space, objects, and interactions. This competition celebrates proposals for innovative “skins” in which humans could interact with their surrounding environments and everyday activities through the different intertwined senses.

Sponsored by: Price Modern
Organized by: AIA|DC Emerging Architects Committee

AIA|DC Tour of Logan Circle, Nov. 5

Tour: Logan Circle and the 14th Street Corridor

WHEN: Saturday, Nov. 5 , 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
WHERE: South Side of Logan Circle, NW, Washington, DC
PRICE: $10 for students & Assoc. AIA members; $15 for AIA & DAC members; $35 for non-members. Register via AIA|DC. 1.5 HSW|LUs credit.

No area in Washington experienced greater change in the 1990s and early 2000s than the interconnected neighborhoods of Logan Circle and Shaw, centered on the commercial spines of 14th Street NW and U Street NW, respectively. To counter massive abandonment and destruction along 14th Street NW following the 1968 riots, the city encouraged new construction at scales considerably larger than most of the pre-existing historically-protected buildings. This set up a tension that architects have resolved via an approach that architect Steve Dickens, AIA has termed “historic district moderne.”

For some 20 years, 14th Street has been an incubator of a new design direction which has spread well beyond urban infill and historic districts. Join AIA|DC for an exploration of this concept as revealed in several dozen new buildings of 14th Street NW.

Tour Guide: Steve Dickens, AIA

Organized by: AIA|DC
