The bank photo above reminds me a lot of the Smithsonian National Zoo's Great Flight Cage that I saw while on vacation this summer with my family in D.C. I know this blog is supposed to be about Grosse Pointe modernism, but I can't help but highlight this seemingly hidden and not so well known modern gem in D.C. The mature landscape in and around the cage reminds me a lot of Lafayette Park's Mies van der Rohe aluminum and glass apartments and townhomes situated amongst a now mature and majestic tree canopy.
