National Building Museum Holding Two A&D Events in February
Washington, DC, February 13, 2018-After a successful opening in November, the exhibition Making Room: Housing for a Changing America will debut its second living scenario on February 22 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
Focused on innovative design solutions for the country's changing demographics, the exhibit's centerpiece is a 1,000 square-foot dwelling unit called The Open House, which will transform from a co-living abode into a home for an extended family.
And from February 22 to 25, The Architecture & Design Film Festival is bringing the best of architecture and design films to the nation's capital for the first time.
Hosted by the National Building Museum and presented with the Revada Foundation, ADFF: D.C. will screen over two dozen films in three separate theaters, including the Great Hall, the museum's interior courtyard. The films explore the life and work of architects such as Rem Koolhaas and Bjarke Ingels, and journalist, author, and activist Jane Jacobs, as well as timely topics such as design for positive social change and generative healthcare design. A series of discussions and presentations with prominent architects and filmmakers will follow select films.
