Presented by the College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES) of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) and the Goethe-Institut Washington, the exhibition “Post-Oil City: The History of the City’s Future” will present solutions for the post-oil city as envisioned by architects, planners, designers and engineers from 10 different countries. The exhibit, presented by IFA (The Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations, Germany), will be hosted on UDC’s Van Ness campus from January 30 – March 1, 2014.
