Modern Snapshot: Brazilian Chancery

The 1971 Brazilian Chancery on Massachusetts Avenue was designed by Brazilian architect Olavo Redig de Campos. The Miesian, floating glass box is currently undergoing interior renovations. Stay tuned for a post highlighting images from the Danish and Finnish embassies from last weekend’s European embassy tour. We never made it to Sweden (kids were expiring) and I slept on the German Embassy; I forgot about the 1964 mid-century modern on Reservoir Road. I will have to catch those next time.
