From the announcement:

Embassy Row along Massachusetts Avenue NW is one of the great architectural and cultural treats of Washington DC. Newly constructed embassies mingle with the brick colonials that give the city so much of it’s charm, but occasionally a nation will elect to built it’s American home in the modern style, making a bold statement about its values, aesthetics and intentions. Stroll Embassy Row as you never have before as Dwell editor Aaron Britt illuminates some of the city’s modern marvels. Spend your Friday morning, May 22rd learning about Washington’s modern architectural history and taking a rare peek inside some the best architecture the world has to offer. We will begin the tour at Dupont Circle at 10:00 am and end the tour at 2:00 pm with a no-host lunch at  Amy’s Pizza on Macomb Street NW. Wear comfortable shoes for this 3 mile walk.

Stops along the way include rare peeks inside the Danish Embassy and Residence, the Finnish Embassy, and the Swiss Embassy Residence. We’ll also wander past the English, Italian, Belgian and Brazilian Embassies, as well as other uniquely Washingtonian architectural treats.
