The Washington region is home to numerous examples of Brutalist architecture, like the Department of Health and Human Services’ Hubert H. Humphrey building. These bulky piles of concrete are derided by many. In the past few years, though, a growing number of people have begun to celebrate the style, like in a new map of Brutalist D.C., or a recent New York Times headline that proclaimed “Brutalism Is Back.” We explore the history of Brutalist architecture in the Washington region and consider whether the style is worth saving — let alone making a comeback.
