White-mug-Gallery-Place-Chinatown-Metro-Station_convio.jpgBrutalism - Metro Mug

Amid the Cold War, urban renewal efforts ushered in a “Brutalist” phenomenon that reshaped the nation’s capital in the mid-20th century.  Many high-profile public buildings were designed and constructed with exposed structural elements and building materials, including concrete, brick, steel, and glass.  They were viewed as cost-effective and efficient, but many haven’t aged well, and public reaction continues to debate their architectural significance.  This ceramic mug features an image of the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro Station by architectural photographer Ty Cole.
