Video: A First Look at the New CSIS

Check out the snazzy new home of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).  Here is a 51-second video showing the inside and outside of its new, $100 million headquarters.

For more than 35 years, CSIS was housed at 1800 K Street, NW in Washington, DC.  Now it is a few blocks north and east at 1616 Rhode Island Ave., NW.  Before its headquarters on K Street, it was housed at Georgetown University for 15 years.

Here is a map showing the old building and the new building.

CSIS was recently ranked as the best think tank in the world for security and international affairs by the University of Pennsylvania annual think tank rankings.  It was also ranked as the 5th best think tank in the world.
