Architecture & Design Film Festival: D.C.

Bonstra | Haresign ARCHITECTS is proud to partner with the National Building Museum as a sponsor of the second annual Architecture & Design Film Festival (ADFF: D.C.), the nation’s largest film festival devoted to the creative spirit that drives architecture and design. On Thursday, February 21st, the film festival’s Opening Night celebration in Washington, D.C. will include the premier screening of Frank Gehry: Building Justice, a thought-provoking film on what it would mean to re-design the American prison, followed by a private reception and panel discussion. The festival will continue through Sunday, February 24th, screening films every 30 minutes beginning at 5pm on Friday.

The films selected for ADFF: D.C. cover timely topics such as the social opportunities and challenges presented by climate change, urban revitalization, and aging infrastructure, and explore the lives and work of renowned architects and designers such as Frank Gehry, Albert Frey, Renzo Piano, and Barbara Stauffacher Solomon.

The National Building Museum is a fitting venue, featuring three separate theaters including the Museum’s iconic Great Hall, specifically outfitted to nestle 16-foot tall screens between its massive Corinthian columns.

Join us for the 2nd annual festival in D.C.! We encourage our friends and colleagues to join us in attending these significant films during the 4-day festival.
