The new International Spy Museum at L’Enfant Plaza is an architectural masterpiece, and like the secrets in the artifacts contained within, the building has many of its own secrets. The building façade plays on the hidden in the shadows and viewed in plain sight aspect of the trade and craft. And part of that is truly hidden, in the air tightness and waterproofing system that keeps the elements out, but was also needed for backlighting of the metal façade. HVAC interaction in the Atrium space with the complex glazed atrium façade also introduced challenges that the speakers will cover. Come hear from Erin McNamara of Hickok Cole, the Architect of Record, and Paul Totten of WSP, the Building Enclosure Consultant as they reveal some of the hidden secrets of the building enclosure at Spy.
