Richmond Field Trip!

9:30 AM – 7:00 PM


1000 Bank St, Richmond, VA, 23218

This November, instead of hosting our normal Columns & Coffee, the L’Enfants are coordinating a very special field trip to Historic Richmond. Similar to our tour of Annapolis last year, we’ll be visiting numerous sites, including the state capitol, the Branch Museum of Architecture & Design, and the Jefferson Hotel. In addition, we will have the chance to view some of the monuments along the famous Monument Avenue. The fee for this event covers admission to the museums but participants should bring money for lunch and an afternoon snack. Also, be sure to bring good walking shoes and a camera and/or sketchbook.

We will gather at the Richmond Capitol Visitors’ Center at 9:30 am. Registration for this event will close on Thursday, November 14th, but guests are strongly encouraged to RSVP earlier in order to better coordinate transportation and tours.

Special thanks to the firm of Glavé & Holmes Architecture, who provided assistance in planning this event and who will be on hand to discuss their work, as well as the historic architecture of Richmond.

Social Sketching: Columns & Coffee at the US Botanic Garden

Saturday, December 14th
10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

United States Botanical Garden
100 Maryland Ave, SW
Washington DC 20001

Columns & Coffee is a monthly social sketching excursion led by the L’Enfants, the emerging architects branch of the ICAA-WMA. This month we will be sketching at the United States Botanic Garden. The Botanic Garden currently features nearly 10,000 plant species, many of which are housed in the eight garden rooms within the main conservatory. The conservatory itself was built by the Architect of the Capitol and prominent greenhouse designers Lord & Burnham in 1933. The enormous glass and metal structure is a unique departure from the marble buildings the rest of the National Mall is known for. In addition to sketching, we encourage our participants to enjoy the annual Season’s Greenings exhibit, which features a showcase of poinsettias and models of other DC landmarks.

We will meet at the Starbucks at the corner of 3rd & D Streets at 10:00am. We will be sketching for about 2.5-3 hours, but people are welcome to come and go as they please.
