The Department of Planning & Zoning is hosting a symposium on June 19-20th to discuss what makes good and contemporary architecture and urban design. We have an excellent panel of speakers to help prompt a thoughtful conversation about what Alexandria could look like in 50 years. The program format is a two-day event, beginning Friday night at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial with presentations by Dan Kaplan, FAIA of FXFowle, Ashley Wilson, AIA of the National Trust, Matt Bell, FAIA of EE&K Perkins-Eastman, and Roger Lewis, FAIA from the Washington Post. On Saturday morning attendees will reconvene at the Virginia Theological Seminary and break out into smaller groups to discuss topics including: designing within the historic context, the role of design regulations, how to create enduring design, and what is good urban design. Following Saturday’s sessions, several architect members will lead an optional tour of the Prayer Garden and new chapel. Please forward the event to your colleagues, friends, and neighbors – the event is free and open to the public.

AIA continuing education credits are available!
