Welcome to Brutalist DC!

We celebrate Brutalism in and around Washington, D.C. Our nation’s capital has a wealth of Brutalist architecture, much of it concentrated in the government center at L’Enfant Plaza, but with plenty of other fine examples of Brutalism spread throughout the District of Columbia, and beyond.

Our goal is to foster awareness and appreciation of Washington, D.C.’s Brutalist architecture through photographic documentation and historical research of each building we feature. Have you seen a building we’ve missed? Tag it with #BrutalistDC on Instagram or Twitter, and we’ll take a look!
