What's the most natural thing to do after renovating your digs? Throw a housewarming party, of course. And that's what renowned K Street architecture-and-design firm Gensler is doing tonight. With the help of event production company Art Soiree, the firm is hosting After Hours@Gensler, a bash to showcase its newly redesigned headquarters, and it's a must-do for the design lover.
Of course, the party will highlight the newly improved space and its architectural odes to the District, but the artistic immersion only intensifies from there. Surround yourself with “environmental pop art” inspired works from artist Katya Krupko, get lost in Masrae’s multi-sensory video projections, and groove to the beats and strings of DJ/violinist Manifesto. Artsy perks and fancy cocktails aside, you don’t want to miss out on this chance to peek into one of Washington's most innovative offices. Snatch up your last-minute tickets here — and hey, what better opportunity to experiment with an avant-garde, structural outfit?
When: Today, July 26, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Where: Gensler, 2020 K Street NW; 202-277-4358.
