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!

2. Article we are reading:

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

How to Earn a Six-Figure Salary as an Architect

3. Exhibit we are checking out:

Toulouse-Lautrec
Because everyone has seen the fake version of this cat poster:

5. Quote we are pondering:

“Architecture is inhabited sculpture.”
– Constantin Brancusi (mostly because of this beard)
