D.C. Builds


Any national museum, no matter how broad its mission, is also fundamentally linked to the community in which it is physically located. The National Building Museum celebrates its connection to Washington through a lecture series called D.C. Builds, which explores design, planning, and development issues in the capital and surrounding region.

Upcoming Programs


Bricks & Bytes
February 25, 2015
The Washington, D.C. economy has historically revolved around the federal government. However, in this age of reduced government funding, the city is looking at ways to diversify the economy, with a renewed focus on fostering the city’s nascent technology sector. Uwe Brandes, executive director, Urban & Regional Planning Program, Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies, moderates a panel on what D.C.'s built environment needs to attract and hold tech businesses.
