AIA Headquarters Renewal | Washington D.C.

Reinventing the campus of the AIA Headquarters is predicated upon a comprehensive ecological and social agenda to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. The proposal seeks to unify the site the existing garden, historic AIA Headquarters building, adjacent historic Octagon House as well as adjacent streets and public ways into a larger, more cohesive sense of campus and place. Ecological performativity and sculptural form optimize the interface between proposed and existing landscape systems through bioretention, living walls, and constructed wetlands, which will treat stormwater and graywater. This experiential and highly visible campus strategy, will increase educational opportunities by reinforcing the headquarters larger sustainable mission.
