Web Site of the Week: National Building Museum: Self-Guided Architecture Tours
The National Building Museum (NBM) tells stories about buildings, their design, and much more via a wonderful collection of exhibits that rotate through their headquarters in Washington, D.C. They also have a bevy of online materials for those who can’t make a visit out to the District. On this corner of its site, the NBM has offered up ten different self-guided architecture tours for those folks interested in mid-century Modern style buildings, Arts & Crafts gems, and the world of Greek Revival structures that dot Washington itself. Visitors can click on each of these tours to get more information about each building, including photos, design details, and much more. The Brutalism and Postmodernism tours are standouts and the level of detail is impressive as visitors are treated to tours of the J. Edgar Hoover Building, the Third Church of Christ Scientist, and the Hubert H. Humphrey Building. [KMG]
