SW Book to be Presented at the AIA National Convention

News—————30 April 2012

Next month, Studio Twenty Seven Architecture will present their Southwest book at the AIA National Convention. The firm’s principals will lead a seminar on the findings and proposals of the study. 

Today, in both a physical and psychological sense, Southwest is an area removed and isolated from the rest of the city’s urban fabric. It is a palimpsest of Washington’s political and economic winds, with a physical form defined by over 100 years of benign neglect and best intentions. Studio Twenty Seven Architecture believes that Southwest needs neither a new urban plan nor the wholesale resurrection of L’Enfant’s original plan, but rather specific interventions to reconnect the quadrant to the rest of the city.

The seminar will open these ideas for discussion. The convention will be held May 17 – 19 in Washington, DC.
