On February 4, more than 400 architects, planners, developers, and journalists attended the 22nd annual Accent on Architecture Gala in Washington, D.C. The black-tie dinner hosted by the American Architectural Foundation (AAF) will likely be remembered as a night of impressive grandiloquence. On the program were representatives from government, the private sector, the AIA, and the AAF. The 15 speakers included Rocco Landesman, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts; G. Sandy Diehl III, vice president of Integrated Building Solutions, UTC; Paul Goldberger, architecture critic of the New Yorker; and Joel Rose, CEO of School of One.
