There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

Based on the photos and drawings, it appears that Hugh Newell Jacobsen has done more interesting work in Paris, Cairo, and Athens than at home. In a slide-illustrated presentation, the Washington architect will discuss his recent designs, including those featured in last year’s monograph, Hugh Newell Jacobsen, Architect, Recent Work, and some still underway. At 7 p.m. at the Corcoran’s Hammer Auditorium, 17th & New York Ave. NW. $15. (202) 638-0561. (MJ)
