1. Event we are excited for:
Our first event of the year is coming up next week! We’ve organized a construction tour of Alexander Court (2000 L St. NW) along with the Young Members Group of the Structural Engineers Association of DC (SEAMW-YMG) next Wednesday, February 15th. Lots of upgrades to the structure and MEP of the existing building made for quite the coordination challenge. If you managed to register before this sold out, we look forward to seeing you for an interesting tour and happy hour following at The Black Rooster!

AIA National included this article on it’s list of articles worth reading this past week, and because sometimes it just feels impossible.

5. Quote we are pondering:
“Architecture is inhabited sculpture.”
– Constantin Brancusi (mostly because of this beard)
