Some of this year's Architecture Week events are a little pricey and may only appeal to hardcore architecture enthusiasts or people planning on building their own homes. But if you keep meaning to pay a visit to the National Building Museum, this event's a good excuse:
Sunday, September 14, 10-4
Meet the next generation of Washington architects and watch them at work. Students from local architecture schools are challenged by an intriguing design problem (which remains a closely guarded secret until a week prior to the competition). They will work all day to come up with a solution.
Location: National Building Museum | 401 F Street, NW
Metro: Judiciary Square
