It’s not so much the door but the cool sculpture next to it. Unfortunately the winter sun was casting some serious shadows but I still think you can get an idea of how awesome it is. It’s also from Georgetown.

According to the artist’s website:

Albert Paley is the first metal sculptor to receive the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects, the AIA’s highest award to a non-architect. “The allure of Paley’s art comes though its intrinsic sense of integration of art and architecture,” as one noted architect stated.

Pieces by Albert Paley can be found in the permanent collections of many major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Western Australia, Fitzwilliam, British Museum.

Couple more shots after the jump.
