Construction is underway for the de la Cruz Gallery of Art
Currently under construction, the Maria and Alberto de la Cruz Gallery of Art on the Georgetown University campus is a new 2,500 square-foot art gallery that will provide a space for sculpture, painting, performance and installation art, among other varieties. The space will also offer visual-art exhibits and shows featuring major modern and contemporary artists. The gallery is in the Walsh Building, where the school’s Department of Art and Art History is based. The design for the space features a two-story glass curtainwall vestibule for the main entrance. The interior of the space will include new restrooms, a catering kitchen, and reception desk, with an equipment platform above holding state-of-the-art mechanical equipment. The gallery is named after Maria and Alberto de la Cruz, avid art collectors and Georgetown University alumni. DIAG Studios' Marcy Giannunzio, originally a part of the design team at her previous firm, is currently providing Construction Administration services. Construction scheduled to be complete this fall. The project team includes: Georgetown University, MCN Build, Howard + Revis Design, Quinn Evans Architects, DIAG Studios, Potomac Energy Group, Ehlert Bryan, and Summers Associates among others.

DIAG Studios hosts a University of Michigan graduate student
The Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning Spring Break Connections externship program allows students to gain experience in a work environment while developing marketable real-world skills. DIAG Studios hosted Sean Kim, a first year graduate student pursuing a Masters Degree in Architecture, during the last week in February. Sean attended client and consultant meetings, toured construction sites, and even visited the DCRA permit office. During this year's program, over 200 architecture firms and urban planning organizations in 25 U.S. cities hosted over 220 architecture and urban planning students. Principal Marcy Giannunzio, a University of Michigan alumna, is proud to have participated in this program since 2007.
