Have you ever wondered what structural engineers say about architects? Or how architects and structural engineers work together to accomplish unique structurally sound buildings?

Come enjoy a tour and discussion between the architects and structural engineers behind the new Center for Strategic and International Studies global headquarters. The nine-story, 130,000-square-foot built-to-suit office building is home to one of the world’s preeminent international think-tanks, and was recently featured in Architecture DC magazine.

This is an opportunity for young, as well as more seasoned professionals, to meet in an informal setting and ask each other whatever we have always wanted to know about the other. A joint networking happy hour will follow the presentation and tours.
