CSIS_200203_08.JPG: From the first and second floor, I had never noticed the chandelier actually represented anything but the guy at the desk pointed me to the description of it.
According to https://www.sosolimited.com/work/csis-data-chandelier/ , the "Global Data Chandelier" has 425 hanging pendants that form a map of the world when viewed from below. The map illustrates global data such as GDP growth rate, renewable water resources, energy consumption etc in a unique lighting animation. Additionally, depending on the event at CSIS, they can highlight different regions of the map that correspond with the country(ies) under discussion.
The chandelier was a joint project by Sosolimited, Hypersonic Engineering & Design, Plebian Design, and Chris Parlato

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is an American think tank based in Washington, D.C., in the United States. CSIS was originally founded as the "Center for Strategic and International Studies" of Georgetown University in 1962. The center conducts policy studies and strategic analyses of political, economic and security issues throughout the world, with a specific focus on issues concerning international relations, trade, technology, finance, energy and geostrategy.
In the University of Pennsylvania's 2013 Global Go To Think Tanks Report, CSIS is ranked the number one think tank in the world for "Top Defense and National Security Think Tanks (Table 14)" and was also ranked as the 4th best think tank for "Think Tanks with the Most Innovative Policy Ideas/Proposals (Table 44)".

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page.

2020 photos: The year is too new to have anything to report. Here's hoping honesty and integrity wins for a change this November.
Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
