Current Exhibitions



#iseeDC2020

2020—one of the most tumultuous years on record—brought about profound changes in the way we view our society, its institutions, and our interactions with the environment. This unprecedented mix of life-changing issues inspired the #iseeDC2020 Instagram Photo Contest theme: Architecture, Equity, and the Pandemic.


Politics, Protest, and Place

Architects and urban designers are stewards of public space and it is their professional and civic responsibility to influence change—as well as elected officials—toward a more equitable built environment for all. Politics, Protest, and Place, an ideas design competition, called designers to rethink their built environment to bolster voices of our communities, foster civic engagement, and promote change through design.


CANstruction

This is the 22nd annual CANstruction held in DC. Over the years, the competition has donated 450 tons of food to the Capital Area Food Bank. That’s the same weight as about five-and-a-half Space Shuttles! CANstruction is an international competition where teams build sculptures out of canned food. All the food is then donated to the local food bank. Architecture and design firms comprise the teams that create and build the structures.
