The Fall 2016 issue of ArchitectureDC Magazine features an article by Ronald O'Rourke entitled "Makeover for a Grande Dame: Quinn Evans Architects Renovates DAR Headquarters." The article chronicles and discusses several efforts by QEA at this National Historic Landmark .
In selecting Quinn Evans to guide the expanded restoration and modernization effort, DAR went with a firm that has deep experience in the field - the DAR complex is one of more than 50 National Historic Landmark structures on which Quinn Evans has worked.
This issue of AIA|DC's magazine is dedicated to preservation and renovation projects throughout Washington, DC.
"Preservation, restoration, and renovation projects encompass challenges for architects - and resulting design solutions - that are often not found in newly-constructed buildings. Preservation, restoration, and renovation are important parts of architectural projects that often don't get the attention they deserve."
