February 16
6:30p (doors open 6:00p)

At the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center (WAAC), 1001 Prince Street, West Room, Alexandria 22314.

Join the Young Architects Forum, in collaboration with the Washington DC Chapter of the Association for Preservation Technology, WAAC, and Pegasus Books, for a thought-provoking evening lecture, reception and book signing.

Dr. Lynne Kelly will present the ideas explored in her new book, The Memory Code, in which she looks at the historical significance of natural and built structures in sharing collective history and memory through ancient civilizations. She will also discuss memory’s relevance not only in terms of its key role in the history of architecture, but also its implications in contemporary design. Read more about the book here.
