If Architecture Could Be a Religious Experience

National Association of Realtors buildingI think the National Association of Realtor’s building on the corner of F, First, and New Jersey Avenue, NW, is one of the most exciting and creative newer buildings in the city. I like the subtle asymmetry, the slightly curved walls, and the incorporation of ironwork scaffolding which is very sculptural. Most of the buildings constructed in the last few years have relied on the semi-circular halo-like device on the roof corners which I find to be tired and uninspired. This building breaks away from all that and offers something not found elsewhere in D.C.
