Saturday, September 11
The shifting interplay of nighttime dark and light make every city a unique destination. Join acclaimed lighting artist and designer Leni Schwendinger and a group limited to 35 as she presents impromptu the D.C. nocturnal city of light, culminating at the ASLA Gala. This mistress of light sculpture and installation will decode the shadows, emanations, and reflections that define the nightscape, from shop silhouettes to the phantom photons of passing cars.
ASLA/Landscape Structures Gala
National Building Museum
$100 per person ($75 student rate) Tickets will not be sold at the door.
Saturday evening’s Gala will stand out as one of the hightlights of our meeting. Attendees will dine on great food and will dance the night away in the Corinthian-columned Great Hall of the National Building Museum. Created by an act of Congress in 1980, the National Building Museum has become one of the world’s most prominent and vital venues for informed, reasoned debate about the built environment and its impact on people’s lives.
