1204 W Street NW
It will likely come as news to many readers that the country is in the midst of The American Institute of Architects National Architecture Week. In its honor, UrbanTurf decided to highlight what we consider to be the neighborhood with the highest concentration of modern residential architecture in the city.
When one thinks of common residential architectural styles around DC, modern would be pretty low on the list. DC has a strong preservationist tendency, so it is not a city where modern architecture flourishes.
However, there is a small pocket in Northwest that has quietly established itself as the city’s outpost for this architectural style. Just a couple blocks northeast of the U Street Metro station, on 10th and 11th Streets between V Street and Florida Avenue, there is a concentration of homes that give the neighborhood a very un-DC, modernist feel. We snapped photos of some of the best specimens:
