Creating Space for Artists

Next week the National Building Museum is hosting a panel discussion on the role of planners, architects, and policy makers in creating live/work spaces for artists. Despite being a premier city for arts and culture, few working artists are able to afford housing and studio space in the city, which deprives D.C. of valuable assets for creativity and economic development.

This lecture is part of a recurring series called D.C. Builds which tackles design, planning, and development issues in the capital and previous talks have been really interesting, so this one is definitely worth checking out! (Pictured are artist lofts at the Arts District Hyattsville)

    How about that “lunch box” take-outs we used to have when we’re young kind of houses? Cool tho.
