Architecture Everywhere — Focus on Language Online Event

Tuesday, October 26, 2021 | 6:00 p.m.

Surprisingly, a building and a language share revealing commonalities. In architecture, well-built and flexibly designed buildings can be revitalized to meet new needs over time. In language, existing words may take on new meaning and new words may enter the lexicon with cultural transformations. Each seemingly disparate subject is rooted in a set of basic rules and conventions, and each evolves with the changing times. In this presentation, Ann Friedman and Rebecca Roberts talk about this unexpected connection while sharing insights into the renovation of the historic Franklin School as an immersive language experience.

This program is part of Architecture Everywhere, a monthly series organized by the Washington Architectural Foundation exploring how architecture comes to life in unexpected ways through other arts and humanities disciplines.
