This office building in the Dupont Circle neighborhood shows the linear patterns common in such modern buildings.

Modern office buildings aren’t always photogenic, but in the right light, their linear patterns can stand out. Their regularity shines in black and white. In this case, an office building in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC. Rather than hide the structure of the building behind a façade, it shows the bones and sinews.

Much of Dupont Circle appears to be brick construction on the outside. This building and the Washington Hilton are some of the exceptions. They are also more recent in their construction. The Hilton is from the mid-1960s. This building appears to be similar.
