Lecture: Brutalist Architecture in Washington, D.C.

Deane Madsen, founder, BrutalistDC blog

Washington, D.C., is home to many examples of the architectural style known as Brutalism. Whether you like or loathe it (or don't know what it is), you have likely seen it around the city. Madsen will dive into the rise of Brutalist architecture in D.C., discussing a few notable and contentious buildings along the way. Madsen, Assoc. AIA, is a writer, architectural photographer, former associate editor of design at Architect Magazine, and founder of Brutalist DC, an informal appreciation society for Brutalist architecture in the nation's capital.

This program is part of the D.C. Mondays at the Museum series inspired by the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection. Free; no reservations required.
