Beginning October 18, Dupont Underground will host a new exhibit titled: Urban Transformation: Ibero-American Architecture and Urban Spaces. The event is presented by the Ibero-American Cultural Attachés Association.
The exhibit features photography that showcases the power of design to transform existing urban structures across Latin America, Spain and Portugal.
On Tuesday evening, October 22, the exhibit will feature a panel discussion on urban design and transformation, titled “The Role of Urban Design in Contemporary Architecture.”
MMD’s Michael Marshall will participate on the panel, joined by Jose Manuel Pedreirinho, President of the Portuguese Institute of Architecture; Anthony Lanier, Founder and CEO of Eastbanc; Kevin Storm, Associate Director of Design of the DC Office of Planning; Isidora Larrain de Andraca, expert in sustainable heritage, cities and innovation in Latinoamérica and the Caribbean; and Julian Hunt, founder of Dupont Underground and Partner, Hunt Laudi Studio.
There is plenty of opportunity to see the exhibit, which will be available for viewing until October 27. The Dupont Underground is a “multidisciplinary platform for creative expression.” Located at 19 Dupont Circle, it transformed the underground station in Dupont Circle to a new public amenity to inspire creative exploration and dialogue.
