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)
