The National Building Museum is going full speed this summer. The newest exhibit “Prairie Skyscraper: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Price Tower” opened last month, featuring more than 100 drawings, models, building components and furnishings honoring Wright’s skyscraper.

Numerous films, lectures and tours are scheduled through August. I am most excited by the building tours of local architecture and green design in action.

The construction watch tour of 1101 New York Avenue will take place July 22nd. Members will get the opportunity to see the ongoing work of this 393,000 square foot office building which is seeking Gold LEED certification. Construction is slated to be complete in December of 2006.
