Last week I accompanied my husband to Washington DC for his worldwide partner meeting. The trip provided the perfect opportunity for me to do a little research. Lately, I’ve been immersed in a project in Miami that has both classical and modern elements, so I found myself focusing on these sorts of architectural details in the places we went.
While in the capitol, I visited the National Gallery of Art and the Library of Congress, both of which contain beautiful examples of classical architecture, such as marble floors and soaring, arched ceilings. I was equally intrigued by the modern architecture and decorative elements of the east wing of the National Gallery of Art and Reagan National Airport (which we traveled in an out of).
I paid special attention to the ceilings and floors in each building, thinking about how I could incorporate some of what I saw into the Miami project.
Following are a few of my favorite shots from the trip.
