Also in the planning are numerous other venues such as Wisconsin Center in Chevy Chase, Penn Quarter-DC, New York, and other locations around the country.

3 Pavilion/Dreier-Barton House
"Local architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, FAIA, became famous for his houses designed as a series of simple, gabled pavilions, but this is the only example of such a project in the District of Columbia. The house has won numerous awards and gained international recognition for its dramatic, contemporary design and innovative approach to the challenging site. Tour-goers will no doubt delight in Jacobsen's trademark gutterless, eaveless roofs that yield pure forms suggesting a child's archetypal drawing of a house."
Owner Peter F. Hapstak, III, AIA, IIDA, ISP, saved the house from a developer's wrecking ball in 2001 and made it his home; he now generously opens its doors for our tour.
Self-guided tours take place 1:00 - 2:00pm, 2:00 - 3:00pm and 3:00 - 4:00pm. Please register for one, hour-long session.
