Even if you don’t have an affinity for architecture, you must agree – it is the backbone of any city. It singlehandedly creates the skyline, gives dreams a place to fester, and hosts hustle inside of its walls. The best part of architecture is that it’s a form of creativity. Some of you might be saying, wait, hold up, doesn’t architecture involve equations that ensure the roof doesn’t cave in and crunching numbers to make sure that doors are going to open? Yes, all of that is true. But it’s also an artistic expression, and as such, us admirers are lucky enough to see a variety of different takes on how a building is built, from the inside out. One of DC’s prominent architect groups is the firm Hickok Cole.
