Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
In its latest edition of the brown bag series “25 Architects in 25 Weeks”, the District Architecture Center will continue to welcome architecturally enlightened discussion among non-architects. The next session, entitled “Traditional Architecture”, will be held at noon on March 8th, 2012 and reaches out to the entire DC community to educate and engage in a conversation about traditional residential design.
Stephen J. Vanze, FAIA, of Barnes Vanze Architects, will lead attendees in a discussion of traditional architectural principles and their application in a sometimes not-so-traditional context. Mr. Vanze is a 2011 Home & Design Designers Choice Award Winner for Traditional Residential Architecture and plans to share his approach on how a traditional building can conscientiously fit in with its DC Metro surroundings.
“We are truly lucky to have Mr. Vanze share his time and insights with the public here at the Center,” says Mary Fitch, Executive Director of AIA|DC. “His practical and clear explanations of architecture resonate well with both architects and homeowners alike.”
The “25 Architects” lunch series is typically hosted on the first and third Thursday of every month. It’s held at the District Architecture Center, located at 421 7th St. NW, Washington, DC 20004.
