Modernist masterpiece in Maryland

BAE Systems, Aspen Hill, Maryland

BAE Systems, Aspen Hill, Maryland

One of my favorite modern buildings in Maryland is the BAE Systems office at 13900 Connecticut Avenue (the official address is Silver Spring, but it’s far from the downtown–it’s really much closer to Rockville where Connecticut Avenue and Georgia Avenue meet and faces Aspen Hill Road behind the Dunkin Donuts). I don’t know who designed it and who was the original client, but it’s virtually unchanged and an outstanding example of Modern architecture. I’d like to take more photos of it, but since it’s associated with the defense industry, I’m worried I might get arrested so go see it for yourself.
