Photowalk with Mark Alan Andre

Brutalist Architecture has gained a reputation for being severe, stark, and boring. The growth of Washington, DC through the 1960s and 70s has lead to a dearth of examples of the style in the central core of the Capitol. The very same things that make Brutalism infamous make it a great subject for a photowalk around Washington, DC.

We’ll look at examples of buildings from architectural icons Gordon Bunshaft, Harry Weese, and Marcel Breuer along with some beautiful examples of the style from less well known designers. We’ll spend some time at each stop exploring the buildings, sharing tips, and garnering a new appreciation for the often maligned slice of architectural history.
