I had previously mentioned that our two studio projects were competitions, and for our final studio project, we went to Washington DC to give our presentation for the Woodlawn Plantation. Arriving in DC Monday afternoon, we parked at the hotel and took the metro to the National Building Museum to see the House and Home Exhibit. The building is quite spectacular and the exhibit was a good one. Monday night, the girls and I went to Mama Ayesha’s in the Adams Morgan neighborhood and had some DELICIOUS Middle Eastern food!!! Adams Morgan is one of my favorite neighborhoods – very diverse in it’s people and restaurants.
Tuesday morning, we headed over to the DC Design Center to present our designs. My group consisted of Kacie Leisure, Kathryn Frye and myself and the three of us really enjoyed working together. Our design styles meshed and the result was an eclectic version of what Woodlawn could be for a modern American family living there today.
We’re anticipating finding out the winner of this competition before the start of next semester, January 14th. The winner will lead the installation of their design at Woodlawn Plantation, and our class will attend the Gala event presenting it to the public. Wish us luck!!!
