AIA Guide to the Architecture of Washington, D.C., fifth edition

Third Place Winner, Design and Effectiveness Award of the Washington Publishers

This lively and informative guide offers tourists, residents, and architecture aficionados alike insights into more than 400 of Washington, D.C.’s, most important landmarks. Organized into 19 discrete tours, this thoroughly redesigned and updated edition includes 45 new entries, encompassing the House of Sweden and the U.S. Institute of Peace, classic buildings that epitomize the city—the White House, the Capitol, Union Station—and a number of private buildings off the beaten path.

G. Martin Moeller, Jr., blends informed, concise descriptions with engaging commentary on each landmark, revealing often-surprising details of the buildings' history and design. Every entry is accompanied by a photograph and includes the structure's location, its architects and designers, and the corresponding dates of completion. Each entry is keyed to an easy-to-read map at the beginning of the tour.

From the imposing monuments of Capitol Hill and the Mall to the pastoral suburban enclaves of Foxhall and Cleveland Park, from small memorials to vast commercial and institutional complexes, this guide shows us a Washington that is at once excitingly fresh and comfortably familiar.

About the Author

G. Martin Moeller, Jr., is senior vice president and curator at the National Building Museum and former executive director of AIADC.

Reviews

"Fitting easily in pocket or hand, it can guide people along 18 walkable tours and to a scattered miscellany of sites. A clear map locates each tour's 6 (Arlington Cemetery) to 44 (Georgetown) numbered sites, each with a photograph and pithy, often insightful commentary."
