Elizabeth Herrmann's Micro House and Little Black House have recently been featured in two different books:
The New Cottage: Inspiration for America’s Favorite Home by Kate Hutchison and published by Taunton Press features EHA+D's Little Black House. This book is a delightful exploration of cottages, cabins, and small homes. It uses case studies to show how architects’ diverse design strategies such as sustainability, economy of means, crafted detail, and informality are employed across a varied, curated collection of houses, to create extraordinary places to live.
Small Innovative Houses by Philip Jodidio and published by Rizzoli features EHA+D's microHOUSE. This book is a breathtaking and ambitious survey of inventive small houses designed by noteworthy architects from around the globe. Featuring the work from world-famous architects to the freshest new talent, the book catalogs the range of inventiveness, frugality and economy found in this growing segment of the building industry.
During the month of March, Elizabeth Herrmann will be Cameron Visiting Architect at Middlebury College. On March 7th at 4:30pm she will be giving a talk entitled "Thinking Big, Designing Small: Turning Constraints into Architectural Opportunities" at Middlebury ’s Johnson Memorial Building, Room 304.

Karolina Kawlaka, AIA Presented Washington DC Interior Flood Plan
Karolina Kawlaka presented their Washington DC Interior Flood Plan "Restoring the Role of Tiber Creek: Flood Adaptation for the Federal Triangle” to the Silver Jackets and 75 members of DC Federal, State and District Agencies, and the Army Corps of Engineers. There is currently no coordinated protection for the Federal Triangle for imminent interior flooding from a storm such as Florence that hit the south in September right after the presentations. Project website is here: https://rcweb.dartmouth.edu/KawiakaK/index.html
Description: The D.C. Silver Jackets hosted two Federal Triangle Area Flood Workshops with approximately 75 stakeholders in attendance at the University of the District of Columbia, on June 6 and September 5, 2018. The intent of the first workshop was to provide attendees with an overview of the flood history and risk in the Federal Triangle; discuss steps individual agencies are taking to flood proof their properties; present on types of interior flood risk management measures; and engage on key opportunities and challenges related to interior flooding in the area. The second workshop focused on potential flood risk management solutions. The Federal Triangle is a section of D.C. that is vulnerable to flooding and is also the site of some of D.C.'s most iconic buildings, as well as the center of tourism.
