Judging Buildings – Third Church of Christ, 16th and I St, NW

The Post’s Jonathan O’Connell recently wrote an update:

“Builders planning to tear down a concrete church after a years-long feud over the historic value of D.C. buildings are moving forward in earnest after a major local developer bought into the property as a partner.”

The Third Church of Christ is located at 16th and I St, NW and was “ designed by the firm of architect I.M. Pei in 1971 and is one of a limited number of Washington examples of Brutalist architecture”.

More updates when/if demolition takes place.
