ArtView’s H-Space Offers Live-Work Studios for Artists

The ArtView condominium is under construction at at 1932 9th Street NW DC 20001 (U Street and 9th) and, in addition to condos, it will offer live-work studios to artists. It’s the concept of painter Paul So, who also happens to be a physics professor at George Mason University, explaining the moniker H-Space which is defined by Wikipedia as:

In mathematics, an H-space, or a topological unital magma, is a topological space X (generally assumed to be connected) together with a continuous map μ : X × X → X with an identity element e so that μ(e, x) = μ(x, e) = x for all x in X. Alternatively, the maps μ(e, x) and μ(x, e) are sometimes only required to be homotopic to the identity (in this case e is called homotopy identity), sometimes through basepoint preserving maps. These three definitions are in fact equivalent for H-spaces that are CW complexes. Every topological group is an H-space; however, in the general case, as compared to a topological group, H-spaces may lack associativity and inverses.

This H-Space doesn’t seem to lack anything. It will provide live-work studios for local and international artists, plus a multidisciplinary project area encouraging artistic innovation and showcasing artists’ work. H-Space will involve collaboration with Hamiltonian Gallery, Cultural DC, and other arts organizations. ArtView residents are invited to partake in H-Space cultural events and gain inspiration from the creative exchange inherent in this uniquely designed space.

About Paul So

Paul So founded the Hamiltonian Artists in 2007 to develop and enhance the careers of emerging artists. The Hamiltonian Gallery at 1353 U Street NW, Suite 101, Washington, DC 20009 focuses on innovative works by emerging artists participating in the Hamiltonian Artists fellowship program as well as mid-career artists.

In his spare time, So also serves as Executive Officer of PT2SO Investments LLC, an environmentally conscious development firm with a strong emphasis on sustainable design. The company’s first development project was the mixed-use building at 1353 U Street, NW that now houses Hamilton Gallery, two condominiums, and office space for Inscape Studio, the architect for both the U Street building and ArtView.
