Earth Day Celebration in D.C. Benefits Architecture for Humanity
In honor of Earth Day, Architecture for Humanity will be taking part in a sustainably-oriented event in Washington, D.C. It takes place on Sunday, April 25, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the LongView Gallery.
Architecture for Humanity is a non-profit design firm that “seeks to build a more sustainable future” through a global network of architecture professionals. At the event, the organization will exhibit video, photography, and story boards highlighting recent architecture projects. The works, including a women’s institute in Rwanda and a project for D.C.’s Cardozo High School, aim to meet communities’ practical needs, while considering environmental impact.The event will also feature food and cooking tips from a local vegan chef, silk screening demonstrations by a DC-based artist collective, and performances from area musicians.
To make the event truly green, organizers will recycle and compost, along with getting rid of waste through “sustainable procurement.” The LongView gallery is also two blocks from the Mt. Vernon Square metro stop, so attendees can get to the event via public transportation.
