“The future of workspace,” is rapidly taking shape at Venture X Fairfax - Mosaic District. With framing up and trades on site, Patner Construction is making quick progress on this 28,000 SF build.


Last week, Steven Whitsitt and Elaine DaSilva spent their Wednesday morning participating in Loudoun County Public Schools' Career Day. Hosting local high school students at Whitsitt IA’s offices in One Loudoun, Steven and Elaine each took the time to share their experience, answer questions, and present on the everyday realities of life in the architecture and interior design profession. As professionals who are always eager to educate and foster the success of future professionals in the industry, it’s no surprise that one student even reported that it was her favorite day of school in over 12 years. Thank you Grant Schafer and LCPS for this wonderful opportunity, we can’t wait to participate again soon.


To all who have served and those who are serving, thank you for your courage, sacrifice, and service.

As we close out National Hispanic Heritage Month tomorrow, we’d like to highlight the Smithonian’s National Museum of the American Latino which, although not yet built, opened its first exhibit this past June.

Since 2004, a campaign to create a Smithsonian museum celebrating the American Latino experience in Washington, DC, has been active. On December 27th, 2020, Congress enacted legislation to establish this museum. With the planning process well underway, “The National Museum of the American Latino will showcase Latino history, art, culture, and scientific achievements to tell a deeper, more nuanced, and complete story about who we are as a nation,” says Lonnie G. Bunch III, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution.

As a precursor, this past June the Smithsonian opened the National Museum of the American Latino’s first exhibit, the Smithsonian’s first museum space dedicated to the Latino experience on the National Mall, The Molina Family Latino Gallery at the National Musuem of American History.

Latinas in Architecture: Stories of Raising the 1% One Latina at a Time, by Alicia Ponce, shares the life stories of Latina women in architecture and the challenges they face as women of Hispanic heritage making up only 1% of licensed architects. Alicia Ponce, a licensed Latina architect, founder and principal of APMonarch Architectural Firm, founded Arquitina in 2020, a national non-profit organization, and published this book in 2021 to raise the number of licensed Latina architects in the US beyond 1%. As a professional leadership and licensure initiative for Latinas in architecture, Arquitina creates equitable and inclusive opportunities for Latinas in the profession by providing mentorship, resources, and connection to allies who collectively advocate for equity and inclusivity in the architectural profession.

Please join us in celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month and take the time to read this wonderful book, share it, and support Arquitina and their mission.

Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980, by Barry Bergdoll, Carlos Eduardo Comas, Jorge Francisco Liernur, and Patricio del Real, explores postwar Latin American architecture from 1955-1980, a time marked by political strife, urbanization, and the rise of Latin America as landscape for development. Published in conjunction with the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) exhibition on the subject, the book includes essays by experts in the field with over 500 reproductions, providing a visual collection of resources on Latin American architecture with archival photographs, drawings, and models included.

Featuring the work of well-known architects, such as Lina Bo Bardi, Luis Barragan, Félix Candela, Oscar Niemeyer, and Carlos Raul Villanueva, alongside the work of lesser-known architects of the region, Latin America in Construction celebrates the contributions, innovation, creativity, and groundbreaking work of Latin American architects and invites us all to do the same.

In addition to Father’s Day, this Sunday is Juneteenth, a federal holiday honoring the end of slavery in the United States. Although the Emancipation Proclamation established in 1863 that all enslaved people be freed, this was not enforced in the southern states until the end of the Civil War in 1865. On June 19th, 1865, Union troops arrived in Galveston, Texas with the news that the more than 250,000 enslaved people in the state were free.

Join us in celebrating this Juneteenth and check out all the ways you can celebrate and honor this historic day in the Washington Metropolitan Area at:

Build Out Alliance

QSPACE is an architectural research platform for projects by students and professionals that support q***rness inclusion through the built environment. “As architects, we believe that design can and should play an active role in responding to social change and as QSPACE, we hope to offer the tools with which to create it.”


After documenting your space’s design for construction, when you , the next step in our process is to ensure your vision is constructed as intended.

During construction administration, we work as your representative to ensure you remain informed every step of the way. By working directly with the contractor and their construction team to answer questions, coordinate with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, consult structural engineers as necessary, and oversee construction progress, we make certain that your vision gets brought to reality as documented.

When you at Whitsitt IA, after deciding upon all the key design elements and features your space will include, the next step in our process is to finalize your selections and document your space’s design for construction.

During construction documentation, we document, dimension, detail, and annotate your plans, locating each key design element and instructing the contractor how to bring your vision to reality. We define how mechanical, electrical, and plumbing ties into your space, what structural impacts or changes may need to be made, and how these elements allow your design to function.
