Completed in Fall of 2018, the Maria & Alberto de la CRUZ Gallery of Art on the Georgetown University Campus is a new 2,500 SF art gallery that provids a space for sculpture, painting, performance and installation art, among other varieties. The space also offers visual-art exhibits and shows featuring major modern and contemporary artists. The gallery is in the Walsh Building, where the school’s art department is based.

The design for the space features a two-story glass curtain wall vestibule for the main entrance. The interior of the space includes a men’s room, women’s room, a catering kitchen, and reception desk, with an equipment platform above holding state of the art mechanical equipment.

The space is named after Alberto & Maria de la Cruz, art collectors who both attended Georgetown University and have contributed financially to the success of the new art gallery.

How difficult will it be to make buildings in DC more energy efficient? It depends on the building.

In December of 2018, the DC Council passed a bill setting a challenge for large buildings across the District to meet new energy code standards by 2026. The law prescribes two different paths: one for new construction and existing buildings performing at or above a median level of energy efficiency....

DIAG Studios, Marcy Giannunzio, recently participated as a panelist in a discussion on "Defining Leadership through the Lens of the Design Entrepreneur". This event was organized by Amanda Lewkowicz and Rebecca Soja, Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program scholars, for their session on Entrepreneurship and Management.

Moderated by Devin Zitelman, this panel discussion delved into what it takes to become an entrepreneur, exposing how to channel the gumption to step out on one’s own, the education to start a business, the motives to relentlessly pursue a mission and then the lessons learned from the trials in the practice they created.

It was a great event - thanks for the invitation!

NEWS :: On October 22, the Alexandria City Council unanimously adopted a resolution declaring a climate emergency, recognizing that climate change poses a grave threat to everyone in Alexandria and around the world.

“The science is clear: humans are causing climate change and the results will be catastrophic if we don’t act now,” said Mayor Justin Wilson. “The costs of addressing this climate emergency are far less than the costs of ignoring it, and local governments have a critical role to play by working with businesses and residents to avert disaster.”

We, DIAG Studios,

pledge to

• support those who wish to participate in the Climate Strike on September 20
• encourage our firm members to be Citizen Architects
• share our pledge with our clients, consultants, and suppliers

On August 20, 2018, 15-year-old Greta Thunberg walked out of her Stockholm school and stood in front of the Swedish Parliament building with a sign that read “School Strike for Climate.” Her demand was climate justice and a living planet.

Today, Greta is joined by tens of thousands of teenage leaders around the world who walk out of schools on Fridays to ask for decisive action on the climate crisis.

We support Greta’s call to action and pledge to #StandWithGreta on September 20 in the fight against climate change.

We also recognize the need to do more. Globally, the building sector accounts for nearly 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and buildings alone account for 72% of U.S. electricity use. The transition from fossil fuels to a thriving zero-carbon economy isn’t just possible – it is necessary. And designers must lead the way.

As members of the American design and construction industry, we are dedicated to tackling the challenging issues that threaten our planet by creating healthy, responsible, and safe communities for all.

Please join us in standing up for the next generation.
