Martin Moeller – Identity and Eccentricity in Washington Architecture

rg logo in colorLecture by Martin Moeller, Senior Vice President & Curator at the National Building Museum

Washington is commonly regarded as a city whose physical character reflects the triumph of order and dignity over vitality and individual expression.  In writing the fourth and fifth editions of the AIA Guide to the Architecture of Washington, D.C., however, Martin Moeller realized that the city’s architectural history is much richer, quirkier, and more varied than most people believe.  In this lecture, he will discuss some of the eccentric personalities who shaped the architecture of Washington and trace the stages by which the city developed its distinct identity.
