Event Details

In the mid-19th century, many talented architects fleeing repressive regimes in Germany settled in Washington, DC, where they designed and built everything from private residences to large government buildings. A century later, in the same tradition, Mies van der Rohe’s starkly monumental Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library added a distinctly modern and internationalist note to DC’s old German immigrant neighborhood. Local historian and tour guide Elizabeth Sherman will reveal first-hand how architects Julius Germuiller, Julius Wenig, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe - and especially Adolf Cluss - left their indelible stamp on the built identity of our nation’s capital. In conjunction with AIA DC Architecture Week.

Meeting point will be at the National Building Museum (401 F St. NW, Metro: Judiciary Square)
