22 January, 2020

Chad Oppenheim will discuss his new book Lair: Radical Homes and Hideouts of Movie Villains at the SPY MUSEUM in Washington DC on January 22nd 2020.

How do you know if you’re a villain? You think building on the sea floor or at the bottom of a volcano sounds good…really good.

This evening, celebrate the unreal real estate that classic spy villains call HQ. What goes into planning a place where evil plotters can freely plot? Innovative architect Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture + Design, took on this question in his new book Lair: Radical Homes and Hideouts of Movie Villains.
