Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)

Washington, DC / Hickok Cole Architects

Hickok Cole Architects’ design for the 130,000 sf, 9-story headquarters of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) at 1616 Rhode Island Avenue, NW, features a multi-story entry lobby connecting three levels of world-class conferencing facilities. The upper floors, which are dedicated to CSIS scholars and staff, will be organized around a central informal meeting place called “The Commons.” The façade along Rhode Island Avenue is composed of a strong stone frame surrounding an elegant glass skin, which opens toward Scott Circle.
