Join AIA|DC and architectural historian Matthew Gilmore for an exploration of the little-known aspects of Foggy Bottom–a neighborhood that it has witnessed, participated in, and reflects Washington, DC’s unique history and will illustrate the shift from industry and residential to an institutional and entertainment destination.

Participants will travel from the Washington’s first Circle to the last remaining early industrial site in the city, through the historic district and alley dwellings, and finally to the transformed Foggy Bottom of the Kennedy Center and Watergate. Notable stops will include St. Mary’s Church, Columbia Plaza, the United States Institute of Peace, Braddock Rock, and more.
