“Large red glowing structure on top of NW office building?”

“Dear PoPville,

I was at a reception on the rooftop just south of the W Hotel. From that vantage point we saw a huge red glowing structure on top of an office (?) building. It looked like it was probably on 16th or 17th and a few blocks north of the White House, but it was hard to tell. It was a cube, probably two or three stories high, and the whole thing was glowing bright red. It looked like it was probably a translucent glass structure with minimal metal structuring on the outside to keep it all together.

My friend and I asked everyone but couldn’t get an answer. Do you know what it is?”
