Modernism in a ‘Classic’ Capital

Here’s a link to “Renewing the Nation’s Capital: Modernist Washington, D.C.,” an article in the Spring issue of Modernism by local preservation expert Kim A. O’Connell. She gives a nice overview of modernism in the city, discussing the key architects and buildings that helped shape the modern landscape in the classic-filled capital.

    This is a thorough and well-written article. It does not even compare to the incredibly lame article that Dwell did last November on modernism in DC.

    When are you ever going to add the Michigan Park neighborhood in NE DC to your list of modern neighborhoods? Michigan Park has a small but fantastic cluster of custom-designed, MCM single-family homes dating from the mid-1950s and early 1960s. Several have aging homeowners that are about ready to convey to the next generation of owners–we would welcome other passionate enthusiasts of Mid-Century Modernism to our neighborhood!
