Claude Engle to Discuss Metro Lighting Project, Aug. 18

Join Docomomo DC and Claude Engle for a talk on the DC Metro Lighting Renovation Project

Presenters: Claude Engle, Lighting Designer & Zach Schrag, Professor of History, George Mason University

Lighting designer Claude Engle will present his ongoing project to renovate the lighting in the Washington, DC area's Metro stations. The new lighting approach implements the original design intent with today’s technology, allowing the stations to fully realize Harry Weese and William Lam’s design for the first time. The new brighter, more evenly lit stations highlight the unique brutalist architecture of the stations. Claude will be joined by historian Zach Schrag, author of The Great Society Subway: A History of the Washington Metro.

Attendees will receive 1 HSW AIA LU.
