McInturff on Modernism in D.C.

In an short interview with the Washington Post Home section, Bethesda-based modern architect Mark McInturff discusses how he blends traditional architecture with modern additions and says modernism has gained more of an acceptance here in the last decade:

“It’s much more desirable and accepted than it was five or 10 years ago,” McInturff says. “People want contemporary, but they say, ‘We don’t want cold.’ In magazines and newspapers, they now see it can be warm and soaring, light and airy, in so many directions that they embrace it. Modernism has become much more varied and user-friendly.”
