I arrived at the Federal court in DC at 8:30 only to learn that my jury duty had been cancelled at the last minute— the parties settled Sunday night. As a consolation for waking up early, I got to walk through the William Bryant Annex, designed by the late Michael Graves and finished in 2005.
Graves, who died last month, is famous for his Washington Monument scaffolding, USDOT headquarters, the Alessi teakettle, the Portland (Ore.) Building, and more. Though many criticized the Portland Building as claustrophobic and dark, Graves redeemed himself in his later work.
Here are some photos of the interior of the Bryant Annex.
