Event Summary

Often at Bisnow events, we dive deep into the deals being made every day, the developments springing up and the ever-changing cycles of our market. Rarely do we take a moment to discuss what attracts residents and tenants to the building at first glance: the design.

D.C. exudes history, and that gives architects challenges to refine and redevelop, all while integrating modernity in dynamic glass structures, with state-of-the-art amenities within. What hurtles do our designers face? How do they make their image stand apart from the rest? And how do deals on the design side of the table get made?

Join us as industry leaders provide their experienced insight and perspective, and forecast the future of architecture and design in the D.C. region. Join the fun on Twitter with hashtag #BisnowArch and don't forget to follow @BisnowDC! For questions, recommendations, comments, or press inquiries please email our DC event producer,

  1. What does DC want to be from an architectural/design perspective? And does DC have a design identity?
  2. How can large developers that are build new neighborhoods from scratch ensure they're designed to create the feeling of authenticity found in D.C.’s older neighborhoods?
  3. What are the hottest amenities in the DC region today that architects work to integrate into their buildings, including tech and 5G?
  4. How can architects design projects that show the rest of the world that D.C. is becoming a more creative and less government-centric city?
  5. How are rising construction costs impacting design?
